Jack is Indigenous and Raf is a non-Indigenous boy who has Spina bifida. The boys share their daily life as they search for hermit crabs, go hunting for barni, fish for salmon, explore the markets, eat satays and dress up as superheros. The true story of the special mateship between two boys who have grown up together in Broome in Australia’s north west.
What happened during the war to transform a determined young man from country Victoria into a war hero – one who would go on to serve with distinction in the Korean War, and become a pioneering figure for Indigenous rights? This is the little-known story of Reg Saunders, the first Indigenous Australian to become an officer in the Army, retold in action-packed graphic format.
What can be done with the short short story? Tom Cho shows us, with great variety and always-live language. Acutely actual, Cho’s fictions speak from the life of the young, looking in many directions and making choices not available to older generations. This is on the exciting edge of literary.
