Ali Cobby Eckermann – Little Bit Long Time

Little Bit Long Time is Ali Cobby Eckermann’s first collection of poetry detailing her struggle as one of Australia’s Stolen Generation. It explores the pain and joy she experienced as she reconnected with her Aboriginal birth mother and ‘her mob’. I found Little Bit Long Time a unique and fresh read that gives us not only the insight into an indigenous community, but also a woman’s longing to find out who she is and where she belongs.
