Kelly Cheung is creative-adrift. The swell is high, the
breeze is soft, and the water cradles where her mind flows. Sometimes you’ll find Kelly up on the banks, book open in her lap. Or perhaps she’s in a lookout, casting eyes to the horizon. She’s learnt a river is not the same as the sea but can be cupped in
the hand just as well.
About the book Kelly will be working on:
The book draws from Kelly’s two worlds and two lives living in Western Sydney and in the coastal community of the Central Coast.
It explores the shifting ground of belonging and alienation that comes from losing one’s identity in the loss of one’s home and perhaps, finding oneself in the home and welcome of another. Social class, culture, and sexuality are revealed to be knives which
cut even as we seek to seal the bonds between us
