Summary
Too Afraid to Cry is a memoir that, in bare blunt prose and piercingly lyrical verse, gives witness to the human cost of policies that created the Stolen Generations of Indigenous people in Australia. It is a narrative of good and evil, terror and happiness, despair and courage
Summary
Stolen from her Aboriginal family as an infant, a prize-winning poet recounts her years of abuse at the hands of her adoptive family and her arduous journey to reconnect with her birth family and find acceptance within their indigenous community
