Issue 2 | Autumn 2022

Follow-up books, albums and even sporting premierships are traditionally known to be daunting. Having said that, we think we’ve outdone ourselves with Issue Two of Kalliope X.

Indigenous Australian fathers have copped it bad lately. To balance a wrong, author Thomas Mayor edited Dear Son, a book of letters by First Nations men addressed to their sons. It is an important contribution to the conversation about fatherhood and race. Tyree Barnette’s personal meditation takes pride of place in our second outing.
