False Claims of Colonial Thieves
SHORTLISTED – 2019 Australian Literature Society (ALS) Gold Medal
From well-known poets Charmaine Papertalk Green and John Kinsella comes a tete-a-tete that is powerful, thought provoking, challenging and unapologetic. Papertalk Green and Kinsella call into question what we think we know about our country, colonisation, land and identity. Each poem is part of a striking conversation that surrounds topics such as childhood, history, life, love, mining, death, respect and cultural diversity. This extraordinary publication weaves two differing lives and experiences together and rarely pauses for breath. Papertalk Green and Kinsella’s words traverse this land and reflect back to us all, our identity and how we got here.
