About the Book

Benjamin Richard Nicoll’s debut book comprises a collection of poems he shared with his Australian wife, KT, while 7,188 miles (11,568 kilometers) of ocean and government bureaucracy separated them. Many of these poems were included in the permanent residency visa application providing evidence to the Australian government of the relationship between Ben, a Southern California native, and KT.

These are not all love poems. Ben uses poetry to wrestle with the pains of separation, aging out of youth, and the fragility of things that have left him waiting on the mailman and a racecar visa.

Ben was born in Mission Viejo, CA, in 1987. He now lives in a rural town on the east coast of Australia with his wife and dog.

Order for KT, from overseas on Amazon now.

Books will also be available for purchase on the day.
