Haiku Book Reviews – part 3

The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai
Slow and sprawling, like
rope coils coming together.
Modern, old and wise.

My People by Oodgeroo Noonuccal
Poems of our country,
powerful, crucial, a must
for school syllabi.

Ghost River by Tony Birch
Slow moving at first,
snaking, twisting, building like
river ebb and flow.

Legacy by Larissa Behrendt
Fact and fiction, wound
into a loving tale of
people, place and past.

The Old School by PM Newton
I thought I didn’t
like crime fiction until I
came across this book.

Talking to My Country by Stan Grant
Powerful, complex,
and utterly important.
Everyone read this.
