A selection of insightful and poignant poems, this collection reminisces with poise and candor about the author's life in Wellington, Catholic upbringing, derelict acquaintances, the challenges of giving up drinking, and more. Aptly named after the phone number of his grandparents, which came to mind out of nowhere after many years, the poems reflect upon the lingering memories and dubious truths of a personal memoir-yet with the verbal skill and emotional precision that only poetry can offer.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A glorious mess of a book, packed with reminiscences of a Catholic upbringing, anecdotes about derelict acquaintances, arcana about aircraft, quotes from a lifetime's reading and movie-going, shrewd observations, skew-whiff axioms." --Sunday Star Times
"These are poems of great formal poise and terrific candour." --Damien Wilkins, author, The Miserables
"A full and distinctive collection, brimming with stories, skill, and knowledge peculiar to this poet." --Lumiere Reader
