    The winner of the 2016 David Unaipon Award for unpublished indigenous writers, Dancing Home is an intensely personal story that nonetheless explores wider themes of racism and tolerance. Blackie and Rips, fresh out of prison, begin a harrowing journey of revenge against a bent copper. Drugs, violence and dancing all feature in the immersive and tightly plotted narrative, which unfolds as they and their mate Carlos embark on a road trip across Wiradjuri country in backcountry NSW. Collis’s writing is particularly strong when writing about how Blackie’s desire for vengeance conflicts with his deep-rooted need to reconnect with his country and his ancestors. Part road-movie, part ‘Koori-noir’, the publication of this novel heralds a strong new voice in Aussie fiction.
