Milk Teeth is a highly original debut volume of poetry by the 2017 Thomas Shapcott Prize winner. It interrogates notions of category, including but not limited to gender. Rae White has produced poetry that is playful and edgy yet, at the same time, accessible and meaningful. It is a wise, adventurous and provocative collection that announces the arrival of a significant new talent in Australian poetry.
