Dropbear by Evelyn Araluen
An innovative collection of poetry and prose from a vibrant new Indigenous voice on the Australian literary scene.
‘You know what to expect of a poet like Evelyn Araluen. Her verse has an unrivalled and merciless clarity of expression and purpose. In Dropbear, she peers through her subjects, right into you – the reader. Evelyn drops her words over gazes and shoulders like a heavy blanket – obscuring or warming, it’s up to you.’ Alison Whittaker
‘Dropbear is a remarkable work. The poems spark with energy and life. Araluen’s is a dynamic voice that demands to be heard.’ Tony Birch
