about this item
Caitlin Maling’s second volume, Border Crossing, continues to showcase the development of an exciting new voice in Australian poetry. Now Maling’s poems shift from the first volume’s gritty treatment of childhood and adolescence growing up in WA, to a consideration of what it is to be an Australian in America, where the conflicting voices and identities of home and abroad jostle against and seek their definitions from each other. In this volume, as in the first, her emphasis on place – geography and environment – is as strong as ever.
