Haiku Book Reviews – part 1

A Brief History of 7 Killings by Marlon James.
Violent & vivid,
a tale of place & people.
Worth each heavy page.

Heat & Light by Ellen Van Neervan
Tender, real and full,
these big entangled stories.
Would not put it down.

The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka by Clare Wright
Expertly crafted
forensic feminism.
All Cla(i)re’s are clever.

Everywhere I Look by Helen Garner
Each time I read her
my heart breaks a little more
for my sub-par skills

We Ate the Road Like Vultures by Lynette Lounsbury
Devoured each page
with long-time hunger asking
where were the Beat girls?

The Women’s Pages by Debra Adelaide
Meant to read a page…
A few quick hours later
put it down, complete.
