As the apparently successful outcome of his white grandfather's enthusiastic attempts to isolate and breed the 'first white man born', he wants to be a failure. But would such failure mean his Nyoongar ancestors could label him a success? And how can the attempted genocide represented by his family history be told? Kim Scott is a descendant of people living along the south coast of Western Australia prior to colonisation, and is proud to be one among those who call themselves Noongar. Kim began writing for publication as a professor of writing in the School of Media, Culture and Creative Arts at Curtin University. Harley, a man of Nyoongar ancestry, finds himself at a difficult point in the history of his country, family and self.
