A stunning mix of memoir, reportage, fiction, satire, and critique composed by a powerful new voice in poetry. Alison Whittakers BLAKWORK is an original and unapologetic collection from which two things emerge; an incomprehensible loss, and the poets 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.WINNER - 2019 Queensland Literary Awards (Judith Wright Calanthe Award for a Poetry Collection)WINNER - 2019 Mascara Avant-Garde Literary AwardSHORTLISTED “ 2019 Prime Minister's Literary Awards (Poetry)SHORTLISTED “ 2019 Victorian Premier's Literary Awards (Indigenous Writing Prize)SHORTLISTED “ 2019 Australian Book Industry Awards (ABIAs) Small Publishers' Adult Book of the YearLONGLISTED “ 2019 Australian Literature Society (ALS) Gold Medal
