AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In Claire G Coleman's second novel The Old Lie, the earth is under attack by the invading forces of the Conglomeration.

'Humans fight back and join the intergalactic Federation to defend their homeland.

'But it turns out humans aren't full citizens of the Federation and can't easily return.

'The Old Lie is a follow up to Claire's Stella prize shortlisted novel Terra Nullius.

'Through a creative use of historical and science fiction, Terra Nullius explored the dispossession of Indigenous people.

'The Old Lie also uses speculative fiction to confront the legacy of the Stolen Generations. It's set in the future but it's about the past.' (Production summary)
