This work is part of a careful and systematic ‘mapping’ of people and place in Western Australia. The stories offer ‘glimpses’ into characters’ lives as they come out of and intersect with ‘place’, the damage caused to the land by human activity and the cost of this to the individual’s psyche. They are stories written from experience (of living where they are set), in the context of a literary tradition while trying to extend and challenge that tradition, and with a ‘life project’ offering a different means of considering how ‘where we live’ presents a mirror and lens for ‘how we all live’. Further, in considering the position of the alienated individual, especially the bullied school boy, the work offers a psychological profiling of isolation and ‘difference’.
