Falling and Flying: Poems of Ageing is the first collection of its kind to be published in Australia. The editors have selected a broad range of Australian poems which explore the universal experience and effects of ageing. Whether the poets are witnessing themselves or their parents and friends succumb to the years, they speak with great precision and insight into illness, frailty, death, loss, grief, and retirement as well as the joys and the wisdom that late maturity can bring. There is humour as well as sadness in this fine and important collection, which includes the work of some of Australia's best loved poets, a volume to be cherished by readers of any age.

    Great read which made us laugh, nod in recognition and will resonate with the able elderly and the generation next to them on the slippery slope of life. I am going to buy it for my middle aged son.
