Black Hours

Black Hours Book Cover

“It wasn’t only Dinmore, suburb of Ipswich in Queensland. Aboriginal and gay, Wayne King felt himself to be an outsider wherever he went in Australia. In Black Hours, he tells the powerful and inspirational story of his quest to escape his past and his own sense of isolation. Salvation comes in learning of his mother’s life and forcible removal at a young age from her parents. Black Hours is a deeply personal story about belonging, and about the destructive practice of removing Aboriginal children from their families. It is a tale of discovery, survival, anger and hope, told with warmth and insight by a new Australian talent.” From the publishers description.
