By Fax to Alice Springs was Simon Mundy’s second book of poems, including work from 1987 to 1995. As the title implies, the poems were written all over the world – North Carolina to Italy, Moravia to Australia – as well as in Mundy’s home territory on the borders of Wales.

They reflect his intense sense of the spirit of place as well as his wry approach to politics and bittersweet relationship with women.
