‘The two-time Miles Franklin award-winner deftly navigates the strange, tricky terrain of decolonisation in an optimistic and exceptionally generous book’ THE GUARDIAN The extraordinary new novel from Kim Scott TABOO tells the story of a group of Noongar people who revisit the site of a massacre in Western Australia. They come at the invitation of Dan Horton, the elderly owner of the farm on which the events unfolded many decades earlier. He hopes that by hosting the group he will satisfy his wife's dying wishes and cleanse some moral stain from the ground on which he and his family have lived for generations. But the sins of the past will not be so easily expunged.
