Works about this Work

'Trauma on My Skin' : Racism as a Force, Writing as a Response Catherine Noske , 2016 single work review
— Appears in: Australian Book Review , October no. 385 2016; (p. 26-27)

— Review of The Hate Race : A Memoir Maxine Beneba Clarke 2016 single work autobiography ; Carrying the World Maxine Beneba Clarke 2016 selected work poetry
'cross two new titles, Maxine Beneba Clarke offers an unflinching portrayal of the impact of racism, and transcends form in turning a lens on Australian society. Together, these two works witness the myriad ways in which racism shapes the daily life of its victims, the ongoing impact and the toll on body and mind. We see this damage play out in each work, both in psychological terms and, as she describes in her memoir, physically. 'For most of my school life,' she writes, 'trauma manifested itself on my skin.' Her writing is blunt, uncompromising. Both works utilise repetition to enormous effect, layering instances of prejudice and returning again and again to specific moments of trauma. While the approach in writing differs radically across the two texts, they share stories to create something much larger between them.' (Introduction)
