Maybe Tomorrow – Australia Day post

Maybe TomorrowMaybe Tomorrow by Boori Monty Pryor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There should be more stories like this in the world. Monty Pryor’s heart-breaking, uplifting, and funny recollections of his life – so far – will fill your heart and feed your soul. If you think that you know about ‘the Aboriginal history’ of Australia – think again. Monty brings an intensely personal point of view to the history of Australia, and at that same time manages to describe the universal experience of Aborigines on this island both before and after the arrival of Europeans.
Written in the 90s in conjunction with Meme McDonald, and Margaret Dunkle, Allen & Unwin released an updated edition in 2010, which I am going to find and read.
Although parts of this story are repetitious and some points are made more than once, this is still a refreshing and satisfying read.
