Description - Telling a Hawk from a Handsaw by Chris Wallace-Crabbe

Chris Wallace-Crabbe writes with an alert curiosity about the world and the speculation it gives rise to. He celebrates household objects as well as the textures of the Australian landscape; European ancestors, both familial and intellectual, and the consciousness of animals; the damaged planet and the continuing possibilities of belief; science and soul. Humour and gravity inform his richly orchestrated language. "Telling a Hawk from a Handsaw" is a collection for a complicated world, both joyous and shrewd.
