The Future Keepers
Publisher: Fremantle Press
In her fifth book, Nandi Chinna, an acclaimed poet and environmental activist, explores landscapes and those who inhabit them. Ranging in location from King’s Park to the Beeliar Wetlands, from a hospital room to Britain and beyond, these poems are passionate, detailed, terrifying and inspiring. Chinna’s strong work urges us to look deeply into nature and ecology, and navigates us between the past, the present and the possible futures we are all responsible for. We leave our poems like battered guidebooks, / a kind of hopeful braille, she writes. Those who read her work will surely benefit.
