Alex Miller takes us on a glorious journey in his poem Song of the Good Visa


One of the strongest and most enduring memories of Australian author Alex Miller’s recent Coal Country, reviewed here recently and one of my favourite books of 2013, is his ability to create an extraordinary sense of place, even in an environment which would have been completely alien to most of his readers. Song of a Good Visa, a poem published today in The Australian, Miller doesn’t just tell you about his journey (geographic and philosophical)  you share the experience. Artwork by Sturt Krygsman.
