Strange Game in a Strange LandDamian Balassone
A Poetic Celebration of Australian Rules Football
A poetic celebration of Australian Rules Football in all its glorious incarnations, from the tip of Tasmania to the Tiwi Islands, from the opening bounce of the season through to the seagulls descending onto the G at the conclusion of the Big Dance. It’s all in here: the dashing half-back flankers, the crumbing forwards, the desert flyers and the mongrel punts. Damian Balassone casts his eye on the great Australian game with this quirky collection of quatrains and couplets.
