Tayi Tibble (Victoria University Press, $20)
Precocious and audacious sums up this first collection from an unmistakably original voice. Helen Clark, Annie Crummer, Keisha CastleHughes, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Captain Cook and many more are among the throng reflecting the clamour of our too- muchinformation world. It all comes presented in an impressive range of styles and forms through which this exciting, intelligent and raw voice speaks. Tayi Tibble transforms contemporary idioms into a music that’s all her own.
