Anonymous Premonition

Yvette Holt

Winner of the 2005 David Unaipon Award, Anonymous Premonition gives the low-down on what it is to be an Indigenous woman today. Her collection of startling and fresh poems treats us to an energetic and unconventional journey from love, sex, empowerment and travel to motherhood and family, activism and grief. Anonymous Premonition is lyrical and luscious but it is also poetic activism that packs a punch. In discussing pride in identity, painful memories, the realities of Aboriginal life and death, and the power of sisterhood, this collection is a tribute to the resilience of Aboriginal women everywhere. Dr Anita Heiss...Yvette Holts is a compelling voice that is loud and proud and she is not afraid to use it.
