Book Information: Pick up some Baggage.

Humankind carries the past as invisible baggage. Thirteen brilliant writers explore this, looking at Australia’s cultural baggage through new and often disturbing eyes.

Go On …

Baggage explores layers and complexities that are oddly Australian. If you think Australian culture is all about neighbours and mateship, you may find Baggage distressing.

What is Australia? What baggage do Australians carry? Pick up this book.

Have a read.

You know you want to.
