A stunning mix of memoir, reportage, fiction, satire, and critique composed by a powerful new voice in poetry. Alison Whittaker's BLAKWORK is an original and unapologetic collection from which two things emerge; an incomprehensible loss, and the poet's fearless examination of the present.
Whittaker is unsparing in the interrogation of familiar ideas - identifying and dissolving them with idiosyncratic imagery, layering them to form new connections, and reinterpreting what we know.
'Alison Whittaker's second book, Blakwork is a bold mix of poetry, micro-fiction, memoir and critique, and a follow-up to her award-wining debut poetry collection, Lemons in the Chicken Wire...Whittaker has drawn on the strength of past generations to become a strong blak woman in contemporary Australia, and readers are gifted her insights into growing up blak. With a unique style of writing, she bravely unpacks themes such as colonisation and Aboriginal rights in Australia.' - Karen Wyld, Books+Publishing
