This a collection of short stories on the theme of Australian cultural baggage.The most memorable for me are Kaaron Warren's story of a man haunted by a village, Yaritji Green's story of the clash between cultures that puts a soul at risk, and particularly Tessa Kum's story of those who slip between the comfortable classifications of race and ethnicity.

This collection deserves a lot more time than I'm going to give it - I'm tired, and I've been writing too long. It is a small press publication, from Eneit press, so I don't know where it is available from. ( )
