Description


Ottavio, a former refugee from Sudan's brutal civil war, lives in
Sydney, Australia; a place rich with opportunity and frustration. He
has a degree in engineering but works in a meat factory. He strives
to be responsible in the ways expected by his community--to look
after his brothers, his cousins, and to get married. Yet, Ottavio
feels like he is failing. Barely sleeping at night, he is unable to
forget what the war took from him, what he left behind.
To prove to himself that he has settled in his adopted country, he
volunteers to help other migrants learn English. In class, he meets
Alice, an Australian-born kawauja. She has a secure existence, a
mundane job, and a need to find more meaning in her own life.
But when tragedy strikes them both, they change in ways they
could never have imagined.
Blinding the Ghost's Eye is a story of belonging--to countries and
families--a story of subjugation, of how we find comfort, and of
promises we cannot hope to keep.
