I found myself relaxing, reading, laughing and became engrossed in times long forgotten.
Jennifer Douglas Literary Publicist
David J Delaney's latest compilation of poetry aptly titled, "Out of Australia" is a journey into the mind of a gifted storyteller's progression in the art.
STUART MCCALLUM
What you'll find is a satisfying and successful collection of modern rhyming poetry by a powerful, compassionate voice of the people.

Out of Australia by David J. Delaney is a found treasure; it's like a handwritten notebook one might discover in an old trunk in his attic, written by some long-lost, adventurous relative, a rough and kind and brilliant man who loved life, family, friends, country, art, nature, learning, peace and words - especially words. A collection of 100 rhyming poems from 2007 to 2009 of various styles and lengths, the book is further broken up into categories: Australian Bush Poetry, War, General, Sonnets and Topical. It's important to note that Delaney is an autodidactic poet, one who seems more interested in communication than scholarship or academic recognition. With this in mind, I suggest starting with poem #168 "My Poetry" and then reading the rest of the collection in order. What you'll find is a satisfying and successful collection of modern rhyming poetry by a powerful, compassionate voice of the people.

It was honour and privilege to receive an advance copy of "Out of Australia," my review (as shown on the back cover) reads.

David J Delaney's latest compilation of poetry aptly titled, "Out of Australia" is a journey into the mind of a gifted storyteller's progression in the art. As readers, Delaney takes us on a wondrous journey of discovery. We experience the magic of his distinctive style covering a vast array of Australia, and the spirit of its people. A true poet sharing his skill with the rest of the world, and giving his readers a never-ending source of enjoyment.

A truly unique book which is very deserving of five stars---enjoy.

Wonderful Imagery! My husband doesn't "like poetry" but he likes this very much! We can share moments together, journeying with David into the bush, and on the roads as truckers. We feel days cool, the campfires warm, taking in the tales of exotic animals with their antics, hear the birds sing, feel the wind and rain. This is a rich experience, tenderly rendered. I highly recommend, and also makes a wonderful gift.
