>> Mino's English Book will be published [ News ]

Dear Everyone -

Finally, the day has come! Thank you all, for waiting for all these years.

After more than 6 years since Mino's passing, I am proud to announce here that I signed a contract with UNSW Press today to publish Mino's English book. I deeply appreciate continuous help and support of Prof. Ann McGrath and Prof. Tessa Morris-Suzuki.

Mino had prepared this English manuscript way before he started writing his Japanese book, which was published in Japan in 2004, a few months after his passing. This English book is not a translation of his Japanese book and it contains more thorough and deeper analysis and stories.

It really has been a long way, but I never gave it up at any moment. The book will be published in 2011. I could not help but smiling and crying at the same time that Mino can finally return a favor to the Gurindji people and the country who accepted him to learn their histories.

Wherever it is, I will be there at the book launch, of course. My husband already agreed to it. :-)
