    A moment in time, an Australian country town and characters to remember, all brought to life in engaging verse.

    1953 is a unique verse narrative composed of monologues and verse portraits. Together, these build towards the story of an Australian town, Eurandangee, and its people on a particular summer's day in the 1950s. The poems reflect the perspective of a number of the town's residents. Rumbling beneath this is the broader examination of a developing post-war Australia, with issues of the lingering effects of war and violence and an accumulation of cultural change.

    Vivid and innovative, 1953 is a striking work of narrative poetry, and a magnificent portrait of an Australian town of the period, and a dramatic moment within that.
