Wajemup: Place across the water where the spirits go

On the surface, this short story is a snapshot of an Australian family holiday. Look a little deeper and you'll find a subtle critique of a society that buries its head in the sand, ignoring a brutal history to focus on its own gain and enjoyment.

Wajemup by Georgina Gregory is a taut short story that evokes a light-hearted holiday at a location with a troubled past - a past that is glossed over by the characters and the narrator. The author displays an economical use of words, drawing a sense of place and character with brief, but deft, brushstrokes. The voice is particularly strong and suggests the author could extend these characters' stories if she wished to explore them further in a longer piece. In all, a pleasant read that captures a quintessentially Australian aesthetic.
