Our author Kevin Price in the news

Last Thursday’s The West Australian carried this piece about our books, with a particular interest in the way Kumakana ‘resonates strongly with a sense of place, yet is not limited by location’. I wrote on what it might be about the novel that evokes this kind of response on my personal blog, in which I discuss some of the hidden concepts that might conjure a sense of place.

Elaine Fry told me afterwards,however, that what she meant by the phrase is this: ‘although the story is set in and has a strong flavour of the South West of WA, maintaining “The Natural Order” is something that is important everywhere’, consequently her comment that it is not limited by location.

I have to say, I rather like that.
