In this remarkable book, Stephen Muecke continues his conversation with his mentor, Paddy Roe. Their new story is a guide to a possible future, based on a past that is never simply past. Paddy Roe is always, and always will be, present, while Muecke remains his enquiring listener and dutiful scribe.
This is our children’s country. To disrespect country, to harm it, is to harm them.
This is how you walk country, in it, with it, talking to us dreamy day by day walking the sea and the red soil, theory and story walking by our side, too, never short of hard facticity as the spirit children play.
