From the Outer: Footy Like You've Never Heard It by Nicole Hayes

A celebration of our great game, From the Outer brings together 30 personal stories about Aussie Rules from unexpected voices: those who are female, Indigenous or gay; those with a disability, a foreign accent or even - perhaps most dubious of all - literary leanings.

Some are closet fans, some are out and proud. Many are ground-breaking and revolutionary, shaking up the institution that has dominated cultural life in Melbourne, and much of Australia, for generations. Some are actively involved in the game, such as Leila Gurruwiwi, panellist on Australia's first all-Indigenous footy show; Angela Pippos, one of Australia's first female sports commentators; and Jason Tuazon-McCheyne, founder of the LGBTI supporter group the Purple Bombers. Others, like Christos Tsiolkas, Sophie Cunningham, Tony Birch and Alice Pung, share their poignant, passionate experiences as spectators and supporters.

Engaging and surprising, From the Outer shows how footy can both thrill and devastate, exclude and unite, by shining a light on the diversity and splendour of the game.

Nicole Hayes's debut release, The Whole of My World (2013), is a Young Adult novel and the first "footy novel" to feature a teenage girl. It was longlisted for the 2014 Gold Inky and shortlisted for the 2014 YABBAs. Her second novel, One True Thing (2015), was awarded the 2015 Children's Peace Literature Award. She bleeds Brown and Gold, which you'd know if you followed her on Twitter: @nichmelbourne.

Alicia Sometimes is a writer, poet, broadcaster and musician. She is one of the 3RRR's Breakfasters team and was on Aural Text for fourteen years. She is a regular guest on 774 and Radio National and was editor of the national literary journal Going Down Swinging for seven years and has appeared in ABC TV's Sunday Arts and ABC News Breakfast.
