Bringing together, for the first time, ten years of writing, creating and dreaming into a single volume, The Night Fisher Elegies by celebrated Australian author Dean Mayes is a luminous journey through a mindscape of love, faith and dreams
|THE NIGHT FISHER ELEGIES DEAN MAYES
Drawn from 10 years of writing, creating and dreaming, “The Night Fisher
Elegies” brings together some of Australian author Dean Mayes’ most
personal and compelling compositions into a singular volume.
Taking the reader on a journey through love, faith, death, grief, family and
dreams, Dean Mayes weaves together moments of reflection that are
tinged with melancholy. They traverse the sometimes brutal landscape of
self examination. They wander through a palace of memories contained
within nostalgic love. They are an experimentation with style, with tone
and character. Some pose questions that remain unanswered. Some are
designed to evoke and provoke. Some are simply present.
The Night Fisher Elegies is Dean’s fifth published work and his first for
Hambledown Road Imprints.
The author of four novels and an Intensive Care Nurse, Dean Mayes draws on ten years of writing and composition, collecting pieces of short
fiction, ghazal poetry and reflective essays into one volume.
