Product Description

This original collection of essays by emerging and established Aboriginal and Settler scholars provides interpretative and theoretcial perspectives on Kim Scott's work. Twelve chapters offer readings of all Scott's novels to date, along with his collaborative non-fiction and his work in the Wirlomin Noongar Stories and Language Project. The collection as a whole amounts to a case for Kim Scott as Australia's most representative novalist today. Over a quarter of a century he as explored and unravelled the intertwined destinies of Aboriginal and Settler Australians from the moment of invasion, contact and occupancy to modern contradictory aspirations and government policies. In carrying out this project Scott consistently engages with the history and discourses that shape the national imaginary; paradoxically it is this focus on the national that establishes Kim Scott as an international writer of stuature.
