Another Australia

Twelve diverse writers reveal another Australia hidden behind, beneath and beside the country we think we know.

by Sweatshop

A suburban psychic’s ominous warning. A conversation in Yuwaalaraay. A glimpse of a shameful, hidden history. A love that moves a mountain. In this unwavering follow-up to After Australia, twelve more boundary-pushing Indigenous writers and writers of colour show us all that is and could exist in our versions of Australia.

Featuring Shankari Chandran, Osman Faruqi, Declan Fry, Amani Haydar, Shirley Le, L-FRESH the LION, Mohammed Massoud Morsi, Omar Musa, Sisonke Msimang, Sara Saleh, Nardi Simpson and Anne Marie Te Whiu.

PRAISE for Another Australia

‘Irresistibly pulls a cord to unstitch myths about this country that need to unravel.’ Ben Law

‘This book holds a spectacular and unflinching energy, moving through and beyond the Australian fantasy, shattering illusions in its wake.’ Sara El Sayed

‘First Peoples’ stories in a collection with diverse writers are not frequently encountered and this book … should be embraced for its inclusive, intricate view of Australia and reclaiming the experiences of diaspora and Indigeneity on these unceded lands. 4 stars.’ ArtsHub

‘These powerful stories are about love, revolution, sovereignty and truth.’ Readings

‘12 diverse writers reveal hidden histories and suggest all the possibilities of an alternate nation.’  The Age
