about That Deadman Dance, by Kim Scott
In the meantime, I'll just say that the book deals with the interplay of cultures in the early days of Australia's settlement, and despite the fact that several novels have dealt with this topic in the past, Kim Scott brings something rather new to the table here. I liked it, most especially because a) it seems to be a very different take on a subject which has been covered in fiction by several authors, and b) Kim Scott is definitely a good writer, one I'll be returning to in the future.
In the meantime, if anyone in the U.S. would like this advanced reader's copy, it's yours for the price of a comment with contact info after this post.
