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...

BURIED NOT DEAD: ESSAYS FROM SYDNEY'S HIDDEN ART WORLD

Shortlisted for the 2022 Victorian Premier's Literary Awards - Buried Not Dead is a collection of essays on art, performance, sexuality, activism and the hidden life of Sydney, through portraits of the artists, writers, dancers, tattooists and DJs that have made their mark on the culture over the past thirty years.

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ---- This collection of essays is for those interested in the arts sub-culture of Sydney, those interested in the less-mainstream - or absolutely non-mainstream! What makes these critiques and writings so engaging is the personal element that Fiona McGregor, performance artist and novelist, brings to them.

Over the course of the book, in addition to reading about a number of artists and performers, we learn a lot about the personal history of McGregor and the importance of this alternative scene in helping her discover and embrace her artistic and queer self. There's even a chapter on cats. It's frank, heartfelt writing that draws the reader in, some of whom may have frequented the same clubs and locations mentioned in this slice of Sydney's history. Craig Kirchner
