Luke Davies first found fame as a poet. He went on to write successful novels including the best-selling Candy, memorably filmed by Neil Armfield to a Davies/Armfield screenplay, starring Abbie Cornish and the late great Heath Ledger. Earlier poetry books won the Age Book of the Year, Queensland and NSW Premier’s prizes and the Grace Leven Prize. His most recent poetry collection Interferon Psalms won the inaugural Prime Minister’s Literary Award for Poetry in 2012.
