Paper Nautilus

A collection of poems by

Moving from sensuous love poems to moments of stark violence and sudden beauty, James Bradley's first book of poetry is a celebration of the wonder of both the immediate and the infinite. Intricate, intense and often strikingly original, it offers a fascinating glimpse of the early work of the bestselling author of Wrack, The Deep Field and The Resurrectionist.

Shortlisted for the 1995 National Book Council of Australia's Banjo Award for Poetry.

"Bradley seems to have one of those imaginations that observes particulars so attentively that it finds the moment when they break into each other. . . This is indeed marine origami."
Noel Rowe, Southerly

"Bradley successfully fuses water, salt, sand, rock, earth and sky with the human body in powerfully sensuous language."
Lynette Kirby, Australian Book Review

"Paper Nautilus is a book that echoes and reverberates in the oddest ways the more you delve into it. Simple poems become profound. Diamond-hard poems somehow ooze with a sweaty physicality. It's a juggler's act that works."
Luke Davies, Ulitarra
