Billy is drifting, looking for a place to land. A young school teacher, he arrives in Australia’s remote far north in search of his own history, his Aboriginality, and his future.

    Kim Scott captures the ambiguities, the troubles and the rewards which accompany the brutal and delicate nuances of relations when particles of one culture pass, as if through a fine sieve, into the heart of another culture.

    Kim Scott
    was born in 1957 and grew up on the south coast of Western Australia. He began writing for publication when he became a teacher of English and his first novel, True Country, was published in 1993 by Fremantle Press. His novel Benang: from the Heart won the 2000 Miles Franklin Award. In 2011 Scott won a second Miles Franklin Award for That Deadman Dance. He has had poetry and short stories published in a number of anthologies and now lives near Fremantle with his wife.
