Catching Teller Crow

Author: Ambelin Kwaymullina and Ezekiel Kwaymullina

Publisher: Allen & Unwin

Published: August 2018

An intriguing and thrilling tale, Catching Teller Crow is part detective mystery novel, part ghost story and will hook readers from the first page. Alternating between deft prose and lyrical verse, the two distinctive voices gradually weave together before merging into a poignant, satisfying conclusion. Themes of grief, survival and justice are skilfully explored as Detective Michael Teller, struggling to adapt after the sudden death of his daughter, attempts to unravel the mystery of a devastating fire in a remote country children’s home. This accomplished tale from respected brother/sister writing duo Ambelin and Ezekiel Kwaymullina will resonate with YA readers. Secondary school teachers will find it an ideal starting point for studies of Australian and Aboriginal history and exploration of themes such as feminism, Indigenous identity and culture and the role of women in society.
