Considering that she has been such a powerful presence in Australian poetry for at least the past half-dozen years, it is a surprise that Hotel Hyperion is only Lisa Gorton's second published book of verse, after 2007's Press Release . Readers have known her through such anthologies as Black Inc.'s Best Australian Poems, in which she has featured from 2008 to 2012.
