Both Sides of the Moon

Author(s): Alan Duff (Contribution by)

New Zealand Fiction

Jimmy understands all about belonging and not belonging. He sees himself as part of both sides of the moon; '...kind of blackman, sort of nigger, in my own country, and kind of white, sort of The Man, but the other half of me. I am torn yet I am more whole since I am both...' He is part of a fractured family, and it's only when he learns about his forebear - a brave warrior who became an outcast from his tribe - that he begins to understand the darker implications of his heritage.
