Winner of the prestigious Arts Queensland Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize, Jaya Savige's Latecomers is a first collection of poems by one of Australia's most exciting young poets. Lively, playful, and always intelligent, Savige's poems show an awareness of place, of the inescapability of history, and a personal commitment to the precision of language.
