Haiku Book Reviews – part 6

The Fig Tree by Arnold Zable
A tale of tales, and
journeys through the past and self.
Haunting, stirring, whole.

Finding Eliza by Larissa Behrendt
Fact and fictions; how
colonial narratives
shape our perceptions.

Beyond the Ladies Lounge by Clare Wright
Skilful and clever,
Wright excels at restoring
women in history.

Offshore by Madeline Gleeson
An in-depth startling
chronicle of our legal
and moral failings.

The Hate Race by Maxine Beneba Clarke
Powerful and real,
we need more Australian
stories like this one.

Not Quite Australian by Peter Mares
What temporary
migration means for who we
treat ‘Australian’.

The Writer’s Room by Charlotte Wood
Every writer should
read this for comfort that our
fears and frets aren’t rare.
