Description - Where Dreams Have Gone by Norma Harrs

Children travel across generations and across time: yesterday to the present. Childhoods determine the fantasms of existence. Wounds slow to heal: abandonment, adoption, feelings of rejection and uselessness, of blame, of uncontrolled initiation to sexuality, extreme loneliness when one retreats from society, obsessive searching for the absolute, desire to rebuild the world again by giving birth, confrontation of death. All these themes appear in the violent yet tender stories in this collection, rather like tunnelling through to a rebirth.

Buy Where Dreams Have Gone by Norma Harrs from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
