***********************************************
'The nonchalant blossoming face of a summer garden belies the work going on below its lovely surface. So it is with the poems in Liz McQuilkin's first collection, "The Nonchalant Garden". They flower from her sharp-eyed intelligent noticing, a fine ear, a caring but not uncritical heart, subversive humour, and above all, a life lived reflectively and responsively, taking nothing for granted.'
MAUREEN SCOTT HARRIS
'This collection should be stamped AUTHENTIC! MADE IN TASMANIA! Liz McQuilkin's life-long love of the island permeates her poetry, whether she's writing of domestic circumstances or the natural world. Like Tassie weather itself - thunderclouds, rainbows and clear blue skies - these poems are wonderfully varied, illuminating the complexities of existence with wit and wisdom and grace.'
