Poems about falling in and out of love. Poems about houses that shake and flood. Poems about frisbees and families. Michelle Dicinoski's Electricity for Beginners is a lyrical exploration of the sparks and surges familiar to us all.
'Michelle Dicinoski's poems have that clarity and zest that marks the arrival of a fresh new voice in Australian poetry. She coaxes you into her poems with sweet allure, and keeps you there ... This is a book that hums lightly, warmly, and with charmed intimacy.'--Judith Beveridge
'The strength in Michelle Dicinoski's poetry is her faithfulness to gravity and other laws of the physical sciences. But the beauty lies in her bright defiance: celebratory moments in which the confetti doesn't fall, but floats in place / in the air just beyond us.'--Bronwyn Lea
