Alan Loney


is it possible, that this place, not

‘the land of my birth’

is where I might truly

come to be

‘at home’


Melbourne Journal: Notebooks 1998-2003 is the third instalment in Alan Loney’s notebooks, covering the period in between his previous publications (Sidetracks: Notebooks 1976-1991 and Crankhandle: Notebooks June 2010–November 2013).

Allowing observations and ideas to fall on to the page half formed, poems to shimmer into and out of existence like apparitions, Alan Loney’s Melbourne Journal celebrates the reflexive muscle of the poet’s mind, heightened by the stimuli of a new place: Melbourne.

Praise for Melbourne Journal:

Alan Loney’s work has always been at the cutting edge of world literature. His mastery has become a resource for us all.
