KILLERNOVA... BOOM!

Relentlessly on beat, visually captivating and deceptively intimate, Omar Musa presents a collection of words and art that burns blindingly bright.

The island of Borneo was once the most heavily wooded in the world, and its people have always carved wood beautifully. In KILLERNOVA, grappling with his heritage, Omar Musa remixes this ancient art form with fiery poetry forged in the stars. With equal parts swagger, humour and vulnerability, Musa charts a journey through the colonial history of South-East Asia, environmental destruction, oceans, bushfires, race in Australia, the isolation and addiction of COVID lockdown, family, lost love and, ultimately, recovery.

Hear Omar describe his work...

ON THOMAS KENEALLY

A thoughtful, nuanced look at Thomas Keneally's The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith by award-winning journalist Stan Grant, which considers race, representation and Australian history.

Stan Grant is drawn to Thomas Keneally 'for many reasons- we share an Irish heritage and a complicated relationship with religion. I am especially interested in The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith, which was a formative novel for me. My family shares a connection with the real Jimmy Governor as well. The book raises questions about non-Indigenous writers tackling Indigenous issues and characters.'

In this eloquent, clear-eyed essay, Grant sheds light on one of Australia's most controversial yet enduringly relevant novels.

LITERARY LION TAMERS

With his unique and entertaining blend of memoir, biography, and literary detective work, Craig Munro recreates the lives and careers of a group of renowned Australian editors and their authors in a narrative spanning from the 1890s to the 1990s.
