John Mateer CM5

John Mateer's work has been variously described as 'inquisitorial' and 'as much at the frontier of language as at the frontier of a psyche', 'finely tuned' & 'powerfully intense', his poetry has received international attention. Born in Johannesburg, Mateer has published 5 books including poetry and travel writing. Elsewhere, his latest book, collects poems written in South Africa, Japan, the US & Mexico. He now lives in Perth.
