              Of course not all great art has its genesis in pain, and not all pain - not even a fraction - leads to the partial consolations of art. But if lancing an abscess is the surest way to healing, can poetry offer that same cleansing of emotional wounds? Shaping the Fractured Self sho...wcases twenty-eight of Australia's finest poets who happen to live with chronic illness and pain. The autobiographical short essays, in conjunction with the three poems from each of the poets, capture the body in trauma in its many and varied moods. Because those who live with chronic illness and pain experience shifts in their relationship to it on a yearly, monthly or daily basis, so do the words they use to describe it. Shaping the Fractured Self gives voice to sufferers, carers, medical practitioners and researchers, building understanding in a community of caring.

              A woman who can't swim wades into a suburban pool. An Indian family sits down to an Australian Christmas dinner. A single mother's offer to coach her son's soccer team leads to an unexpected encounter. A recent migrant considers taking the fall for a second generation 'friend'. A... wife refuses to let her husband look at her phone. An international student gets off a train at night. Roanna Gonsalves' short stories unearth the aspirations, ambivalence and guilt laced through the lives of 21st century immigrants, steering through clashes of cultures, trials of faith, and squalls of racism. Sometimes heart-wrenching, sometimes playful, they cut to the truth of what it means to be a modern outsider.

              The Night Side of the Country

              It is the Time of the Felled Men. M, a writer, finds her own past triggered by the constant revelations of misogyny and violence. The novel she is writing stalls. She involves herself in #MeToo and this has consequences - including the threat of litigation. She retreats to a gues...thouse on a holy island (a fictional Iona) and there she encounters B - a woman who may or may not be a figment of her imagination - a woman who may or may not be Irish. This encounter takes M's novel in a different direction. B is reckoning with her violent political past in an organisation known as the Movement. B also suffers the consequences of stepping forward in this period. She has been on the run since speaking out against gender violence. All the way through, the threat looms large: A man may come here. We both know this much. The novel plays with modes of storytelling to address the central questions: How do we deal with trauma and gender violence? How do we give voice to that which has been unvoiced? How do we heal? This feminist genre-crossing novel explores the creative process as a place of refuge, ambiguity, and as a starting point for resistance. The place where the 'You' and the 'I' connect.

              Flute of Milk

              Flute of Milk (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Fealy, Susan

              • RRP: $22.99
              • $20.69

              • Delayed Release

              Flute of Milk is Susan Fealy's first full-length collection of poems after years of publication in Australian and US journals and anthologies including Poetry (Chicago), Island, Cordite, Rabbit and in the Anthology of Australian Contemporary Feminist Poetry (Hunter, 2016). The co...llection is in two parts, with each one interrogating love, loss, gender and aesthetics. The poems refract these themes through personal experience, as well as through a broader cultural lens. Some of these works are direct responses to the act of reading literature. The hallmark of this collection is precision with language: these works are always present and vivid.
