Benang: from the heart

Front Cover
Fremantle Arts Centre Press, 1999 - Fiction - 500 pages
10 Reviews
Oceanic in its rhythms and understanding, brilliant in its use of language and image, moving in its largeness of spirit, compelling in its narrative scope and style, this intriguing journey is a celebration and lamentof beginning and return, of obliteration and recovery, of silencing, and of powerful utterance. Both tentative and daring, it speaks to the present and a possible future through stories, dreams, rhythms, songs, images and documents mobilized from the incompletely acknowledged and still dynamic past.

Review: Benang: From the Heart

User Review  - Scott - Goodreads

Took me a while to get into this - but am approximately half way through and loving it. It's dark, haunting, terrifying, beautiful, lyrical. I couldn't finish it. Too sad. Too hard. Broke my heart. Read full review
