About the Book:
Ross Gibson watches the harbour as acutely as he does the ancient land and the more recent landfall of Sydney. Over decades he has paid attention in his writing and other artistic pursuits to the aftereffects of Sydney’s colonial history, its environmental silhouette, and its poetic forms.
In Flooded Canyon, he uses haiku to lay down some of these contours created through deep observation of littoral zones.
