Alive in Dubbo by DG Lloyd


Available for sale from 1st Jan 2023!

Alive in Dubbo is a collection of localised free verse. The poems are honest reflections, observational and personal depictions of life within an often-overlooked Australian community, serving both as individual snapshots and suggested chronicles of a larger narrative. Raw and sometimes confronting, illuminating and accessible, Alive in Dubbo offers a unique perspective of Australian culture and of existence itself.

D.G. Lloyd is a poet with his eyes and ears fully alert, capable of producing sharp-edged, unsentimental portraits of his town, many of its citizens and indeed of himself. All this being done with remarkable sympathy for those involved. It’s an attitude which, not just Dubbo, but Australia should welcome. ALAN WEARNE
