An interesting psycho-geographic story of a man pursuing answers to his best friends death. This journey is circuitous (and sometimes long-winded) taking us to the heart of memory and reconciling the past - colonisation, the erasure of first nation history and the painful inadequacy for our first people of living “two-ways”, the dispossession, the fragmentation the griefs and losses. This is a vivid depiction of some of the character and characters of the desert, an Aboriginal outstation and its people and the remaining culture. While it could use an edit (some prose is a little florid for me) this is an original story seeking to reconcile the past.
Intrigued by the plot but did not keep me captivated. Found it a bit difficult to commit to.
