      DescriptionWe asked a shelf-load of Australian writers to tell us about the books they loved this year. ... An extraordinary Australian poetry year. Expectedly, I couldn't read everything enticing. Kate Lilley's Tilt (Vagabond Press) and Rozanna Lilley's Do Oysters Get Bored? (UWAP) were unforgettable in accomplished styles and subject, including discussing early sexual abuse. Far from feeling denigrated, their mother, Dorothy Hewett, would have been proud of them. Their courage and great lucidity come from her forthright values.
