There is no need for memory moving between grace and love like the wounded magpie
that cannot fly and keeps close to the house, wary of wild cats come out
of the stressed bush, wilder than its own wildness – inherent and made from experience.
Inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy, John Kinsella’s ‘distractions’ create a world in which heaven, hell and purgatory co-exist. Set in the wheatbelt zone of Western Australia, Kinsella’s Divine Comedy takes the reader on a journey through the real and imagined and nature in its full regalia. This is a book of hope and redemption that faces up to the terrors and traumas in all of us.
