AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This non-fiction text is an account of an exchange of stories between a school in Kabul and a school devastated by bushfires in Kinglake. As writer in residence, Neil Grant encourages the traumatized Australian students to make contact with their counterparts in an international school in Kabul. Their contact leads to a great deal of writing, including fictional pieces in which they experience vicariously the lives of others.
