Description - On Passion by Dorothy Porter

In On Passion, celebrated Australian poet Dorothy Porter delves headfirst into the passions, both literary and earthly. We discover the young Dorothy Porter's 'drug of choice' was none other than romantic love and that 'some of the most deeply passionate experiences of (her) life happened between the covers of a book'. Written just before she passed away in 2008, On Passion is a wonderful, ultimately joyous, insight into the creative life of one of our best loved poets.

Buy On Passion by Dorothy Porter from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
