Description - Sun Wind and Diesel by Miriel Lenore

Where, or rather how, does anyone belong? In this book, Miriel Lenore reflects on her life in two places - a Ngaanyatjarra community in the desert where she is a visitor, and her home in Adelaide with family and friends. To these people and places, she brings a sharp eye, her political and historical lenses and wry humour to create deceptively simple poems with many layered meanings. In her poems, the land always carries its complex and particular history, as she interweaves her reponses to the natural world with the deliberate relationships between people and the continuing effects of the past. Miriel Lenore's spare, taut style, with its subtle voice rhythms, carries the strength and precariousness of someone who asks how she may begin to belong in the desert as her feet tell her she does in Adelaide.
