Chris Mansell is one of Australia's most respected poets. She is well-known for her performance works, so her latest work, The Fickle Brat, was perfectly suited to IP Digital's new audio + text series. On the CD, you get the complete e-book, but also Chris reading 34 of her favourites in high quality .mp3 sound. You can choose to listen as you read along, or you can just close your eyes and listen to the audio anthology. What makes this series even more interesting is that you can hear the audio anthology on a portable CD player, as well as on your computer. Which means you can listen on the beach, in your car, or wherever you have a portable CD! Chris is a keen observer of human nature, as adept in presenting the pre-language utterings of a toddler as a memorial tribute to a poet who died young. In spite of the trials we face, she never loses her sense of irony and humour. Her extended work "good poetry" treats the power politics of writing with a delightful honesty.
