x + 122 pages including b/w illustrations. An award-winning Australian performance poet of Anglo-Irish heritage, educated in Wales U.K., Joye completed her studies with a B.A. in Communications and Grad Dip. in Tourism Management from the University of Technology, Sydney. Joye’s first book, Of War & Other Things, poignantly explores the war experience through poetry and short stories, predominantly from a woman’s perspective. Some of the pieces are in?uenced by the experiences of people whose courage has inspired a deep response from Joye. This is the base upon which a rich tapestry of ‘faction’ is woven. Extensive research accompanies her work and footnotes are often included for historical interest and as an information key in a multicultural society. Most of the poems and stories in this book relate to the Australian experience and the reader is immediately aware of the writer’s deep love for this country. Joye has led a colourful and active life in business and the arts and is currently working on the script of her first film, ‘The Orient Pearls’, which deals with the abuse of ‘Comfort Women’ during World War Two. There is a dedication signed by the author in the first page.
