AbstractHistoryArchive Description

From losing so much in her war torn home, Osijek, to locating new senses of self and context in Canberra, 'yes, I remember everything' says the poet. Traversing from 'there' to 'here' to 'anywhere', la, la, la is a collection of dialogues between present and past. Lukic's is a disarming poetics that wonders and then meditates meaning as she moves between her shifting worlds. (Publisher's blurb)
