HEAT 19. Trappers Way

In 1985 Judith Beveridge and Dorothy Porter shared a house in Trappers Way, on the Pittwater side of Avalon in Sydney. Both were completing their first major collections of poetry. Other essays in this Autumn 2009 issue of HEAT include David Walker’s memoir of his mother and 1930s Australia; Lindsay Barrett’s biographical sketch of William Stanley Jevons; Mark Mordue’s Newcastle vignettes, on the women who dominated the landscape of his childhood; Hugo Bowne-Anderson on David Foster Wallace, and Ben Naparstek on Bernard-Henri Levy. In fiction and non-fiction relating to travel, Aravind Adiga meets ‘the luckiest man in the world’ in Mankulam in Sri Lanka, Vanessa Berry recalls a visit to Germany, and Roslyn Jolly takes a scholar’s holiday in Malta. In short stories, Mandy Sayer sees life through the eyes of an undertaker’s daughter, Dorothy Johnston through those of an old man. Poets include Ali Alizadeh, Tim Thorne, Jill Jones, Felicity Plunkett, L.K. Holt, Niobe Syme and Sam Byfield, with a dialogue in verse by John Jenkins and Ken Bolton. The art feature focusses on photographer Robyn Stacey, in a new series which explores the domestic interiors of the pioneering families, the Macleays, the Macarthurs and the Wentworths.

HEAT 19. Trappers Way
Cameron called speed the laureate’s drug. I think Alan liked the connotation and he would not stop anyone from calling him The Laureate when he was running around bent and on speed. He even started promoting himself as The Laureate. Only when he was on speed though. When he was sober he was ironic and very modest.
