Annotation

Andrejs and his friend Danny steal the savings of Mrs Samuels, a bag lady. The story represents people dislocated from society, like Andrejs’ mother, a Latvian-born refugee who rejects Australian society despite having lived in Australia for 40 years. Broken friendships and disrupted family and social structures feature throughout this thoughtful story.
