At times sensual, always potent, Lemons in the Chicken Wire delivers a collage of work that reflects rural identity through a rich medley of techniques and forms.

It is an audacious, lyrical and linguistically lemon flavoured poetry debut that possesses a rare edginess and seeks to challenge our imagination beyond the ordinary.

Alison Whittaker demonstrates that borders, whether physical or imagined, are no match for our capacity for love. 

Book review:

'Lemons in the Chicken Wire is a cutting collection that explores themes of kinship, sexuality, and social inequality in rural and urban Australia. Whittaker’s evocative imagery transported me to another time and place, and I often felt nostalgic for the “fan-forced” rural summers of my own youth. A must-read!' Review by Darby.
