Alexis Wright: Tracker

View descriptionShare

Throughout a distinguished career, Alexis Wright has significantly enriched the country’s understanding of Aboriginal cultures. Her newest work – composed entirely of first-person testimony – marks a departure from acclaimed fiction such as the Miles Franklin-winning Carpentaria. It tells the true story of Tracker Tilmouth, a member of the Stolen Generation who fought tirelessly for self-determination for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. In conversation with The Australian’s Chief Literary Critic Geordie Williamson, Alexis explains how the charismatic political thinker inspired Alexis’ return to non-fiction.
