Girls and Buoyant by Emily Crocker

Girls and Buoyant by Emily Crocker


Emily Crocker complicates home and family in her debut book, Girls and Buoyant. With sensitivity and wry observation, Crocker explores old suburbs and new loves at the intersections of intimate moments and where late capitalism pokes at our lives. Girls and Buoyant is a striking debut poetry collection as Crocker presents an unflinching examination of life outside the margins of the urbanised middle class.

First edition. Second printing.

Book. Perfect bound. 62pp.

Praise for Girls and Buoyant

"Thinking and feeling through the work of Aisyah Shah Idil, Allison Gallagher and Emily Crocker at this particular moment of time, has opened space; activating language, words, grammar, paper and energy with their truths and generosity." - Frankie Hanman Siegersma, Australian Poetry
