Jessica Phillip Gwynne, like the narrator of Deadly, Unna?, is not Aboriginal.

It's a good story, but if the purpose of the list is to recognise those authors who may have been ignored because of their cultural background, one could argue that Phillip didn't have this difficulty in getting his book published.

Hello Jessica, I know that sometimes Aboriginality is questioned, both by indigenous people and by non-indigenous people. My sources for inclusion on this list can be seen at http://anzlitlovers.com/the-anzlitlov... - which is where my original list comes from. Other people have added to the original list, and they may not have checked as carefully as I did.
*shrug* It happens here at GoodReads, and it can be rather annoying when people add books that don't belong...


message 3: by Jessica (new)

Jessica My source was Gwynne - met him in school and he didn't identify as Indigenous when he wrote either DU or NY. I hope people check their additions closely before adding - quite embarrassing otherwise.


message 4: by Jessica (new)

Jessica Looks like a few additions aren't recognising the list focuses on Aust. Indigenous writers either... c'mon people read the description! Shame because this is a very useful list otherwise.
