Irreverent and courageous, Throat is a fierce cry that fights to be heard. This is van Neerven's most powerful work yet.


not in Aus, mate bad things don't happen here our beaches are open they are not places where bloodied mattresses burn Throatis the explosive second poetry collection from award-winning Mununjali Yugambeh writer Ellen van Neerven. Exploring love, language and land, van Neerven flexes their distinctive muscles and shines a light on Australia's unreconciled past and precarious present with humour and heart. Van Neerven is unsparing in the interrogation of colonial impulse, and fiercely loyal to telling the stories that make us who we are.
