Description

There's a climate of fear in friendly Goulbourn and Shane is forced from his family, and flees to Kings Cross. A lost boy in a loopy neighbourhood, Shane is unsure of his sexuality, more unsure of how to find intimacy and completely thrown by having to choose between laundry liquid and powder. Strangers in Between is a warm, insightful and funny coming-of-age story with endearing characters and very well-observed dialogue from one of Australia's most talented emerging playwrights. Timothy Conigrave's classic memoir, Holding the Man is one of Australia's Favourite 100 Books (2003 Australian Society of Authors 40th Anniversary list), won the United Nations Human Rights Award for Non Fiction in 1995, and has been published in several languages. Holding the Man is breathtakingly honest, achingly funny and a completely heart-wrenching account of a fifteen year relationship that weathered disapproval, separation, temptation and, ultimately, death. It's a story, and a celebration, that speaks across generations, sexual preference and cultures.
