Description - The Airways by Jennifer Mills
I had a body once before. I didn't always love it. I knew the skin as my limit, and there were times I longed to leave it.
I knew better than to wish for this.
This is the story of Yun. It's the story of Adam.
Two young people. A familiar chase.
But this is not a love story.
It's a story of revenge, transformation, survival.
Feel something, the body commands. Feel this.
But it's a phantom . . . I go untouched.
They want their body back.
Who are we, if we lose hold of the body?
What might we become?
The Airways shifts between Sydney and Beijing, unsettling the boundaries of gender and power, consent and rage, self and other, and even life and death.
A powerful, inventive, and immersive novel from award-winning author Jennifer Mills.

'A haunting and intimate examination of violence, alienation, dislocation and possession, and the need to reckon with the past. The Airways is a masterful novel: Mills writes prose of rare distinction.' - Julie Koh
