Dimitris Tsaloumas was born on the Greek island of Leros in 1921. In 1952, persecuted for his political beliefs, he left Greece for Australia. After a decade and a half of silence he began publishing his poems again in Greek and then in 1988 brought out Falcon Drinking, his first of seven books of poems written in English. His many honours include the National Book Council Award and the prestigious Patrick White Award. He divides his time between Melbourne and Leros.
