Smoke Encrypted Whispers is a collection of stories and essays from West Australian writers.
Exhilarating road poems, urban songlines and ancestral ties are the hallmarks of this popular young poet. Smoke Encrypted Whispers contains poems from all of Samuel Wagan Watson’s publications, as well as his unpublished new work.
This generous collection opens with his 1999 Unaipon-winning volume Of Muse, Meandering and Midnight and concludes with his latest poetry.
Inspired by his recent writing workshops and readings in Berlin and New Zealand, the new poems comprise a quarter of the collection. In the distilled haibun form, Watson’s narrative gift hones indelible images.
