Cold Spring: A Diary
Author: Tom Clark
Publisher: Skanky Possum Press (2000)
Tom Clark, author of the novel Heartbreak Hotel, expands upon his poetic foundation with Cold Spring, a collection of ink drawings and chronologically arranged poems whose bare phrases conjure vivid images even in their simplicity. It is a poetic diary of sorts which chronicles the events of a month, and Clark's impressions of quotidian life are drawn and written with a keen sense of detail, perfectly capturing winter's dark allure.
