Shadow Lines, Stephen Kinnane’s award-winning memoir, tells the story of Jessie Argyle, who was born in the remote East Kimberley and taken from her Aboriginal family at the age of five. It’s also the story of Edward Smith, a young Englishman escaping the rigid structures of London. Despite unrelenting surveillance and harassment, the Smith home was a center for Aboriginal cultural and social life for over 30 years.
