Written when the author was in prison, this collection remains a poignant historical plea for Aboriginal justice – from Black deaths in custody to Land Rights – and bears witness to contemporary Indigenous issues. The remarkable Holocaust Island was the inaugural winner of the David Unaipon Award in 1989. Graeme Dixon began writing poetry while he was in Fremantle Prison and his poems address contemporary and controversial issues – from Black deaths in custody to the struggles of single mothers – and are as relevant today as when his book was first published. This dynamic collection is threaded with poems of spirited humour and sharp satire. Dixon’s powerful voice rings out loud and clear.
