The Possibility of Flight
Poetry. Winner of the 2008 Interactive Publications Picks Best Poetry Award, Poetry at the cutting edge of contemporary writing. The poems in Lia Hills's first collection journey from "artesian memories" of the Australian desert to the "shifting territory of the gods" in rural Pakistan, as they glide with a wing shift between love, language and faith.
