'a fine eclectic anthology' (Dr Jim Leavesley in Australian Doctor)
Verbal Medicine is a quick-acting, long-lasting literary elixir ideal for those suffering from a deficiency of the art of medicine.
Verbal Medicine was WINNER of the ACT WRITING AND PUBLISHING AWARDS (POETRY) for 2007.
Twenty-one poets, one hundred poems, a historical sketch and select bibliography record a blossoming of poetry concerned to locate the human firmly at the centre of a clinical world that often has other priorities.
Verbal Medicine: 21 Contemporary Clinician-Poets of Australia and New Zealand is a treatment for our unscientific yearning for the panacea of empathic mind.
