Randolph Stow, West Australian poet and novelist, has died.




Merry-go-Round in the Sea
(1965) is perhaps his best known novel, but for me Tourmaline(1963) is outstanding. I'm glad to see it is in reprint and may still be available.

His poetry also had me mesmerised when I was younger. I shall go and read some now in homage.
