AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Rudra, the son of a fisherman, lives quietly in a small town on the Central Coast of NSW. He has dealt with racism his whole life but hasn't engaged with his Indian heritage until two events change the pattern of his days: his grandmother, his Didima, visits from India; and then while out fishing, Rudra and his dad haul up a tiger skull in their net. Soon Rudra and his mum are on a journey to India, where Rudra seeks to discover answers to the questions he'd never thought to ask. A wonderfully compelling novel underpinned by journeys of discovery and notions of belonging.'

'On 20 August 2018 the ABC aired a ‘special literary edition’ of Q&A during the Melbourne Writers Festival. It had a stellar line-up: John Marsden, Maxine Beneba Clarke, Sofie Laguna, Michael Mohammed Ahmad, and Trent Dalton. Viewers must have been optimistic. Were Q&A’s producers indulging in a long hour of lively literary debate? Unfortunately, they were not. But even though politics overshadowed much of the discussion that evening, the panellists made a considerable effort to draw on their expertise as writers rather than as political commentators when answering questions from the audience.' (Introduction)
