Everyday Epic

Anna Kerdijk Nicholson's most recent book, Possession, won the Victorian Premier's Prize for Poetry and the Wesley Michel Wright Prize and was shortlisted for the NSW and the ACT Premiers' Prizes for Poetry. Her first book, The Bundanon Cantos, was mentioned in the Sydney Morning Herald's Best Books of 2003. She was born in Yorkshire (England), emigrating to Australia after studying literature then, as a postgraduate, qualifying as a lawyer. She works as a solicitor in Sydney and has served on the committee of Poets Union Inc and as a director of Australian Poetry. Everyday Epic is Kerdijk Nicholson's third full-length collection. It honours the courage of our small C21st selves who battle on-in the face of prejudice, racism, the Intervention, Australia's immigration policy-despite our 'pathetic human-ness'. Comments on Kerdijk Nicholson's earlier collections: 'Skilled...Writing of poise and flair. Her angles of view are out of the ordinary.' Peter Pierce 'Full of sensual awareness and anachronistic leaps of imagery, abundant with things and ideas.' Philip Salom The Bundanon Cantos is '...a rare and impressive work'. David McCooey 'Possession is .. a book of true poetic engagement'. Martin Duwell 'Kerdijk brave enough to deal at length with what is perhaps the primal Australian narrative. Possession deserves considered attention as a book central to many unresolved issues at the heart of Australian poetics...Books like this should be unavoidable nodes in the vast network of Australian poetry, culture and politics in the early twenty-first century.' Stuart Cooke
