Description - Lemons in the Chicken Wire by Alison Whittaker

Winner 2015 black&write! Indigenous Writing Fellowship - a partnership between the State Library of Queensland's black&write! Indigenous Writing and Editing Project and Magabala Books

From a remarkable new voice in Indigenous writing comes this highly original collection of poems bristling with stunning imagery and gritty textures. At times sensual, always potent, Lemons in the Chicken Wire delivers a collage of work that reflects rural identity through a rich medley of techniques and forms.

It is an audacious, lyrical and linguistically lemon flavoured poetry debut that possesses a rare edginess and seeks to challenge our imagination beyond the ordinary. Alison Whittaker demonstrates that borders, whether physical or imagined, are no match for our capacity for love.

"Lemons in the Chicken Wire is truly an astounding, proudly experimental, innovative, daring, disjunctive, playful and unique poetry debut" - Dr AJ Curruthers, Rabbit Poetry Journal
