Murunna Point Revisited is a revised and expanded version of Evening at Murunna Point, first published in 2001, and seeks to take its essays, stories and poems into the digital age with renewed concerns for issues of social justice, literature and love, seen from a critical perspective honed over many years by a largely invisible handicap. Clinical depression and anxiety disorder can shackle the sufferer into virtual paralysis, as if being sent into exile without leaving home. However, such a uniquely immobilising experience can also allow a sense of accelerated awareness – a key aspect of any creative endeavour – and these essays, stories and poems attempt to validate this ironic truth.

  • The Shapes of Light
    Ian McFarlane
    Why has poetry fallen so sadly by the literary wayside of our hectic digital age? An age, if ever there was one, needing the kind of humanising empathy that readable (and quotable) poetry can provide.
