Synopsis

From Kinglake to Kabul by Neil Grant, David Williams

Students from Diamond Valley College and the International School of Kabul share their stories: 'There is dirt on my face. I do not care about anything else in the world except for what I am writing.' Paige Dwyer 'After twenty-five years, my father and uncle have moved back to Afghanistan. My father says, You are going to build this country again. ' Shaheer 'My family had to run on foot because, although we had a car, my dad just had a learner's permit and he dared not drive.' My Nguyen and Thuy Nguyen 'I am an Afghan and I am proud of it.' Rahiba 'We had one terrible day in February 2009, Afghanistan has had 30 years of war. This is not a book of remembrance or a book that desires to shock, it is a book about what is best about human nature.' Neil Grant

About the Author

Neil Grant was born in Scotland in the year of the Fire Horse. He graduated from the International School of Kuala Lumpur in 1985 and spent a large part of his adult life travelling and working in a variety of jobs, including instrument steriliser, forklift driver, banana picker, dishwasher and brickie's labourer. His long involvement with the ocean and the difficult business of struggling from boyhood to manhood (almost there) led him to write about these things. David Williams was Head of English at Diamond Valley College during the writing of this book.
