Short-listed for the 2022 Stella Prize, this is a unique rendering of the Noongar people's fight and struggle for respect and recognition. Multi-genred, Shiosaki captures the voices of her family powerfully.
Shiosaki is a Noongar/Yawuru writer and teaches at UWA.
"This sublime debut highlights the tenacity of family as well as First Nation’s agency to resist, survive and renew."
"…there’s power in Shiosaki’s words...a challenging reminder of our past and a challenge to the behaviours and attitudes of today."
– Rod Lewis, GLAM Adelaide
"'Homecoming' is a stellar constellation."
– Dr Jeanine Leanne, Australian Book Review
"Verging on the hypnotic in its effect, ‘Homecoming’ is at once a lullaby, and a lament."
– Gregory Dobbs, Good Reading
"...elegant and extraordinary..."
– Australian Arts Review
