Anthony Albanese on ‘The End of the Line’ by Rae Desmond Jones

The End of the Line, the final collection of poems by Rae Desmond Jones.

Rae Jones was one of the great characters of the Inner West. His commitment to safeguarding the built environment led him from being an activist to becoming Mayor of Ashfield Council. Rae’s  poetry reflects the eclectic and progressive nature of the community where he lived, as well as his passion for politics. The End of the Line canvasses a range of topics including family, friendships, history and the state of the world.
