The Novella Project II - Forgotten Stories- Griffith REVIEW 46 explores in fiction forgotten stories with a historical dimension, delving beyond the handful of iconic tales that have grown threadbare. The massive migration of the past generation is not only changing Australia but reviving the need to find new ways to tell forgotten stories. Stories that are part of a shared, but often overlooked, cultural heritage of this country. Forgotten Stories will redefine what it means to be Australian in the twenty-first century. A sea-change couple dig into the past of their newly adopted small town, and discover a secret better left undisturbed in a masterful story by Cate Kennedy. Tensions simmer between Afghan cameleers, Aborigines and white Australians at the time of Federation in a story by John Kinsella. A newly-arrived Japanese family remembers World War II and confronts 1960s Australia's narratives of themselves in a novella by Masako Fukui. Emma Hardman's fourteen-year-old Margaret gets more than she bargains for as she heads into the country to help her sister in flu-ravaged post-WWI Australia. Megan McGrath's moving story returns the reader to Australia's recent whaling past; it is a story about the mistakes we continue to make, about the crippling power of love and the grip of small towns.
