AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Mike Ladd's new collection, Invisible Mending ranges across genres including essay, memoir, short story and poetry. Based loosely on the ideas of scarring and healing, Invisible Mending extends from family intimacies to connection and disconnection in the Australian community, environmental damage and repair. It also has an international view. Parts of it were written at an artist's residency in Malaysia and while travelling through South America.' (Publication summary)
