Among these outstanding writers is a growing number of Indigenous authors, whose voices are included here. Their stories - many of them previously untold in literature - deepen and expand our understanding of the experiences that comprise Australia's past, present, and future. Both the Indigenous and non-Indigenous authors in Where the Rivers Meet address their country's struggle to create a shared citizenship and sense of belonging. Some seek the key to this shared belonging in the creation of a more just relationship to the land and in issues of ownership. Others find clarity and rejuvenation in the country's harsh and beautiful wildness. Still others emphasize, in the words of Melissa Lucashenko, that we need to hear 'the small, quiet stories in a human mouth' in order to truly know this land and its people.' -- Publisher's website. 2006 pg. 122-123

    'David Malouf's brilliant collection of poems begins with a memory of new love - with 'grace unasked for, urgencies that boom under the pocket of a shirt' - and ends in the intimate territory of the long-familiar where there is no need for words. This volume is marked by an astonishing breadth of intelligence and erudition, yet steps lightly among the objects of our lives and the wonder of everyday replenishments. Everywhere the poems affirm the mystical delights of music, angels and fields where 'first to gather are the starlings in unquiet flocks. Then quietly, the stars'.'
