‘If we can wash this black off, might be hope for you yet,’ her great-grandmother would say, on every occasion.

Born Into This by Adam Thompson
Published stories from a Tasmanian palawa (Aboriginal) perspective are sadly few and far between, but Adam Thompson's debut collection, I hope, will start something of a correction to that. Startingly authentic and brutally honest - I grew up and continue to know people who are very much these characters - I can't wait to see what will come next.
