David McCooey is an elegist of the everyday. His poems combine minimalism and intensity, elegance and emotion. Finely crafted and edged with wit, they offer a kind of unsentimental nostalgia, a passionate irony. Blister Pack is a first collection of immense control and variety which has the haunting resonance of music.

MEDIA REVIEWS

On of the most immediate pleasures of McCooey's poetry is its formal elegance, its air of composed sensuousness. `Beguiling' is how Dorothy Porter describes its `silky rythms'.

-- Jennifer Strauss * Australian Book Review *

Throughout this collection, there is pleasure in seeing a lucidly articulate intelligence at work. It is a readerly pleasure compounded, not negated, by the poet's recognition of the limits of experience.

-- Jennifer Strauss * Australian Book Review *
