Author(s): Lily Brett
Mud in My Tears is Lily Brett's sixth collection of poetry. Her first book, The Auschwitz Poems, won the 1987 Victorian Premier's Award for poetry.
In these moving and varied poems, Brett exoplores her roles as daughter, mother, wife and friend in a family full of love but haunted by the war. In a language steeped in memories, full of vivid images and dark humour, these poems leave an enduring mark upon the reader.
