Join Melissa Ashley in-conversation with Carmen Leigh Keates discussing her poetry collection Meteorites.
In this much-awaited first collection, Carmen Leigh Keates draws on her experiences of cinema and of travelling to regions in Scandinavia associated with iconic films - among them, Bergman's remote Swedish island of Fårö, and the Estonian capital Tallinn, where Tarkovsky filmed his science fiction masterpiece Stalker.
In these poems, geographical, dream and film worlds collide with brilliant results, taking the reader on unexpected and unpredictable voyages.
These are wise, strange and luminous poems … Carmen Leigh Keates draws a collection so full of ice and light, so distinctive, that it makes you want to follow wherever she goes. Michelle Dicinoski
