In Some Ways Dingo by Melody Paloma



“These are cruising poems: from inner city nights to driving country roads with a view across dashboard to margarine-coloured longrass – shoplifting along the way – with pop favourites Nick Cave, Sleater-Kinney, Neko Case and Taylor Swift as the soundtrack.”
Pam Brown

“The poems revel in their uncouth streak, off-road and with a ruinous attitude.”
Ella O’Keefe

Melody Paloma grew up on the Northern Rivers in New South Wales. She was the recipient of the 2014 Overland Judith Wright Poetry Prize for her poem ‘Hyper-reactive,’ featured in In Some Ways Dingo, her first book.
