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 emer≥ 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
