'In her debut collection, award-winning talent Caitlin Maling explores coming of age in contemporary Australia. Writing from Perth, Houston and Cambridge, Maling’s early years to adulthood are told through the lens of the Australian landscape. For young settler Australians this is a place that both defines and undermines identity. A place that claims but can’t be claimed in return. Restlessly questioning and slipping between promise and possibility, Maling’s Australia is richly evoked in narratives of raw power and feeling.' (Publication summary)
