Thank you Jess for that original slant on That Dead Man Dance. Connecting Bobby with the Cleverman series was a really good way of bringing Kim Scott’s approach into our contemporary discourse.
Here are a bunch of Jess’s blog questions that you can add to what you had last week:
1/ Write a passage in of your own in the style of an alternative/magical/mabarn realism.
2/ Or discuss your personal response to ‘Clever man’ if you have seen the tv show.
3/ Do you consider the ending of the novel pessimistic? Discuss.
4/ Create your own question.
