Vagabond Press is proud to announce the re-release of Peter Boyle's multi-award winning Apocrypha. Apocrypha remains one of the most remarkable works of the imagination to come out of Australia. a compendium of fitctive translations from ancient worlds real and imagined, Apocrypha uses a variety of texts - poems, prose poems, philosophic dialogue, travel writing, biography - to meditate on the nature of our contemporary world.

The imagined poet-translator, the deceased classicist William o'Shaunessy, creates from his fragments a work that recalls at times Swift 's Gulliver's Travels, at times Borges or Pessoa. on its release in 2010, Apocrypha changed what was possible in Australian poetry. Boyle's masterpiece sits easily beside the best of Borges, Marquez or Calvino.
