Julius Lester,Karen Barbour: Let's Talk about Race

Let's Talk about Race


I am a story.So are you.So is everyone.Julius Lester says, "I write because our lives are stories. If enough of these stories are told, then perhaps we will begin to see that our lives are the same story. The differences are merely in the details." Now Mr. Lester shares his own story as he explores what makes each of us special. Karen Barbour's dramatic, vibrant paintings speak to the heart of Lester's unique vision, truly a celebration of all of us.

When Patrol Officer Alistair Cawdor commits suicide on a small island off New Guinea a colonial inquest is launched. Five witnesses are called to give testimony- the government interpreter, the territory's cadet officer, a planter who claims ownership of the island, one of his servants and the son of the local Let's Talk about Race free ebook chief. Each has a disturbing story to tell. Cawdor's secret past will eventually be put together, piece by damning piece. But what of the ominous newcomer Metusela, and the unidentified visitant that has inspired a cargo cult? First published in 1979, Randolph Stow's novel Visitants was informed by the author's own time in the Trobriand Islands two decades earlier. It is one of the most potent examinations of Australian colonialism. 'A brilliant, ambitious novel.' Sydney Morning Herald 'Tautly and vibrantly written, and brilliantly evocative of its Trobriand Islands setting.' Australian Book Review
