Jim Aubrey’s work on East Timor, West Papua and Tibet during the 1990s was endorsed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Bishop Desmond Tutu, John Pilger, and Daniel Berrigan SJ. Quoted in several parliaments, his book Free East Timor (editor, Vintage 1998) set the course for a change in foreign affairs policy. After twenty years, Jim Aubrey returns with 20 Dead Canaries & 1 Song of Love, a collection of poems in the quintessential tradition of the poet-activist. Relevant, rebellious and uniquely tuned to our troubled times.
To survive is not enough.
