David Mason

Poetry

In The Sound acclaimed poet David Mason collects his best shorter work of the past forty years, including lyrics like "Song of the Powers" and darkly brilliant narratives "The Collector's Tale" and "The Country I Remember," which Anthony Hecht called "a welcome addition to the best that is now being written by American poets." A poet of love and history and nature, Mason forges a language that can reconnect us to the world.

Walk across Australia

Walk across Australia

David Mason

Poetry

David Mason walked across Australia because no-one else had done it. He did it on is own with no support crew. After his experiences in the French Foreign Legion it was at once a challenge and a way to reconnect with life, people and Australia. In taking on the challenge he sought to raise funds for the Fred Hollows Foundation. David sought to demonstrate that in taking on challenges we live, rather than taking the easy way out and instead, live lives of quiet desperation. David was the first person to walk across Australia at its widest point. In the course of that expedition he also was the first recorded person to walk solo east-west across the Simpson Desert and its 1100 dunes. For this achievement he was named Australia's Adventurer of the Year and awarded the Gold Medal of the Australian Geographic Society.

Gossipy, rambling and enchanting, alive with Mason’s love for books of every variety."—Kirkus ReviewsFrom his drug-hazy, book-happy years near the Beat Hotel in Paris and throughout his career as antiquarian book dealer, David Mason brings us a storied life. He discovers his love of literature in a bathtub at age eleven, thumbing through stacks of lurid Signet paperbacks. At...
