Kerry Leves 1948-2011

I was very sorry to hear of the passing of Kerry Leves. I only met him once, at the Reading Across the Pacific conference in Sydney in January 2010, but he gave a fine paper there. I was already very familiar with him as the resourceful and cogent reviewer of poetry for Overland and for his own work as a poet. He seemed like the kind of figure who would have many years on the literary scene ahead of him; his loss is a real blow for the vitality of the Australian cultural sphere.
