I tell you that this story of my own is part of a much older story... one of a perpetual billowing from the sea, with its rhythm of return, return, remain... I offer these words, especially to those of you I embarrass, and who turn away from the shame of seeing me... We are still here, Benang.
"With quiet clarity and broad resonance, Benang plunges its readers into the emotional and historical truths of 'half-cast' Australia. This is a work of deep, disturbing and dangerous necessity." - Carmel Bird.
"Kim Scott...uses a cool, almost matter-of-fact style to brilliantly render a form of white madness that ravaged the Australian continent in the disguise of Reason." - Amanda Lohrey.
