As a journalist I am a senior writer, lifestyle, with News Queensland writing across a number of News limited mastheads including The Courier-Mail, The Sunday Mail and Brisbane News. My area of specialty is arts, entertainment and humour.
As an author I write about myself and, if that sounds self-indulgent, you don't know the half of it. Mind you if you read either of my memoirs - Travels with My Angst or the latest, Any Guru Will Do, both published by University of Queensland Press, all will be revealed.
Existential angst reigns in these and both my books of poetry - Plastic Parables and An Accident in the Evening .
Is that a good thing? You can be the judge of that.
Book Titles by Phil Brown include
Travels with My Angst - Travel book
Journalist-about-town Phil Brown has travelled widely but always reluctantly. Whether pursuing a tailor-made suit in the back alleys of Hong Kong, souvenir hunting in Ubud or dodging potholes on the road to Kathmandu, he shoulders a veritable kitbag of travel phobias. read more - click here
Plastic Parables (1991 - Poetry
What Phil’s reader say:
These finely-crafted, quirky poems range from evocations of a lost childhood in Hong Kong, through musings about Ernest Hemingway and the watching of contemporary TV, to reflections about waiting for a pizza and feeling sympathy for a solitary, suffering woman on the sidewalk in cosmopolitan, trendy New Farm in inner city Brisbane. Funny, bitter, cool and derelict, An Accident in The Evening is an idiosyncratic and engaging collection of poetry that is fresh and wonderfully liberating.
