Kim Scott writes novels, short stories and poetry. He is the award-winning author of Benang: From the Heart, which won the Western Australia Premier’s Book Award and the Miles Franklin Award, Australia’s most prestigious literary prize. Scott presents That Deadman Dance, about the early contact between European settlers and the Noongar people of Western Australia’s south coast. Young native Bobby Wabalanginy is eager to join the Europeans when they appear on his shores, but not everyone feels the same way, and soon Bobby, a friend to both parties, is forced to take sides.
