Lemons in the chicken wire [electronic resource]

Whittaker, Alison2016
At times sensual, always potent, Lemons in the Chicken Wire delivers a collage of work that reflects rural identity through a rich medley of techniques and forms. It is an audacious, lyrical and linguistically lemon flavoured poetry debut that stimulates the reader both visually and aurally, and possesses a rare edginess that seeks to challenge our imagination beyond the ordinary. Alison Whittaker demonstrates that borders, whether physical or imagined, are no match for our capacity for love. Alison Whittaker is a Gomeroi poet, life writer and essayist from Gunnedah andTamworth, northwestern New South Wales. She now lives in Sydney on Wangalland, where she studies acombined Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws atthe University of Technology Sydney. Her work has been published in Meanjin, Vertigo, Colouring the Rainbow: Blak Queer and Trans Perspectives. In 2015 Alison was awarded one of two Indigenous Writing Fellowships by the State Library of Queensland?s black&write! project. Written over four years and inspired by small fragments of her own life, Lemons in the Chicken Wire is Alison?s first published collection.
