Carey Steers New Novel Into Australia's Aboriginal Past
Peter Carey is one of Australia's most critically acclaimed authors. But until now, he says he's avoided a big topic: Australia's history of dispossession of its first peoples. For a long time, he believe that as a non-Indigenous author, it wasn't his place. But Peter Carey's view on that has changed and his new book, A Long Way From Home explores some of the more shameful parts of the nation's past. He spoke to Matt Wordsworth. And a warning, this interview contains strong language.
