The room rustled as the children looked around. They knew no one had been to the coast but they checked in case for liars, for the too-dumb to know the difference between the real world and the television, for the dreamers. A young boy yearns for a rabbit; a man battles for his fathers love; a group of middle-class Australians find themselves in a newly renovated house; and an elderly refugee worries about his daughters sea voyage. Seabirds Crying in the Harbour Dark is about seeking refuge, about how we define home and what makes us feel safe. The stories in this collection ask a simple question: what does it mean to live with compassion and kindness?
