The Year of Not Dancing

In The Year of Not Dancing , C.L. Dallat explores some of life's most profound issues - the bonds of family and formation of identity, the sense of home and belonging, the function of grief, hope and remembrance - issues that are central to all our lives. Charting three generations of his own family, Dallat's poetry is finely crafted, sometimes witty and always tender, alert to the nuances and ironies that are core to the formation of our sense of self.
