Centered on Australian suburbia in the 60s, 70s and 80s The Lovemakers explores the inner and outer tensions of families, friendships and society whilst charting the sleaze, mayhem and humanity that go to make a nation's life. A remarkable verse novel, this edition brings together the two prize-winning volumes first published in Australia - and which are now out of print - for a first complete edition.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Lovemakers is the crowning achievement of a career that has been stubbornly original in the poetic forms that it employs, supple in language, astringent in thought. [Peter Pierce The Bulletin]But The Lovemakers isn't just about overdoing it: it performs overdoing it. Wearne's aesthetic is one of excess, of conspicuous idiosyncrasy. Part of its excessiveness and oddity is its oxymoronic status. Wearne's books are simultaneously poetic and prosy, realistic and outre, stylistically heterogeneous and tonally homogenous. [David McCooey Australian Book Review]
