“In this, his second book, William Yang takes us into his personal orbit, showing us pictures of the people and places that have marked new beginnings in his life. He is ‘adopted’ by his Chinese teacher, lulled by Sydney’s shoreline, mesmerised by old family portraits and driven from his home by a merciless inferno. Through his images the reader not only observes, but also participates in, the contrasts and surprises of birth, life, and death’ – the back cover.

Loosely enclosed, an unsigned vintage print of a swimmer in the Sydney surf.
