A deeply personal exploration of Australia’s colonisation past, present and future by one of Australia's finest contemporary authors

This is a difficult piece to write. It cuts closer to the bone than most of what I have written; closer to my bones, through my blood and flesh to the bones of truth and country; there is truth here, not disguised but in the open and that truth hurts.

In Lies, Damned Lies acclaimed author Claire G. Coleman, a proud Noongar woman, takes the reader on a journey through the past, present and future of Australia, lensed through her own experience. Beautifully written, this literary work blends the personal with the political, offering readers an insight into the stark reality of the ongoing trauma of Australia’s violent colonisation.

Colonisation in Australia is not over. Colonisation is a process, not an event – and the after-effects will continue while there are still people to remember it.

Product Features:

  • Claire G. Coleman is one of Australia's most well-regarded Aboriginal authors and commentators. Her non-fiction essays have featured in The Guardian, The Saturday Paper, The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald, Meanjin, and many more.
  • This is Claire's first full length work of non-fiction and it could no be publishing at a better time – her profile is growing and the subject of the impacts of colonisation is one that deserves more focus and discussion every day.
  • Claire is an in-demand author and regularly appears across a wide array of media speaking on the subjects discussed in this book.
