Praise for White-out

“These poems consider everything human: … They’re deft, poised, and compassionate. Many will stay in mind and invite revisiting …”
— Michael Sharkey, editor of Australian Poetry Journal

“Each a self-contained unit, the poems combine to create a portrait of a life busily observing, reflecting, writing. Each in turn feeds into a richer narrative of being in and of the world, and of selfhood defined always relationally.”
— Professor Tony Simoes da Silva, University of Tasmania, from the foreword

“perceptive, reflective, generous.”
— Ralph Wessman, former editor and publisher of Famous Reporter

“By turns whimsical and as penetrating as a surgeon’s knife. From deeply personal to philosophically abstract, a powerful range of images and ideas.”
— Emeritus Professor James Cotton, UNSW Canberra

“Saxby Pridmore captures the feelings of any one of us … this collection is a surprise to enjoy.”
— Anne Henderson, author, biographer and deputy director of the Sydney Institute
