The Old Lie
by Claire G. Coleman
Melanie Kembrey in the Sydney Morning Herald:
"It is known as the 'overview effect', the profound shift in understanding that astronauts can experience when they see Earth from space. Claire G. Coleman's new novel, The Old Lie, evokes a similar transformation of perspective – taking us deep into the cosmos to reveal our home planet in all its beauty and horror.
Coleman doesn't write happy endings – she will, she says, when Aboriginal people have a happy ending. She wanted to be honest about the experience of being Aboriginal, not tell a new lie."
