Read full description of the books Dying in the First Person:Samuel and Morgan are twin brothers separated by several oceans. Once upon a time, when they were children, they shared not only a family and a childhood, but a secret imaginary world that had a language of its own: Nahum. But that was decades ago: before Morgan became a wanderer whose only contact with his brother was stories, written in Nahum.
When Morgan unexpectedly passes away in the Netherlands, the woman he was living with — the mysterious Ana — agrees to accompany his body, and his final Nahum story, home to Australia.
What she carries home to Samuel is not just a manuscript, but a startling revelation.
In gorgeous and incisive prose, Sulway conjures a haunting, moving story of the complex relationships and allegiances of family life, of silence and memory, and the power of words and the imagination to transform everything.
‘Dreamlike and prophetic and true. Like the best translators, Sulway pushes language to defy its limitations, to defy our own.’ Kristina Olsson
Read information about the authorHi! I am an Australian writer who enjoys reading as much as (perhaps even more than) writing.
In 2000, I won the Queensland Premier's Literary Award for Best Emerging Queensland Author for my novel The Bone Flute (under the author name N A Bourke) which was released by UQP in 2001 and subsequently shortlisted in the Commonwealth Writers Awards. My children’s picture book, What the Sky Knows (Illustrated by Stella Danalis), followed in May 2005 and was shortlisted for two separate categories in the 2006 Children’s Book Council of Australia Awards. A third novel, The True Green of Hope was released in August 2005. My most recently published novel is Dying in the First Person, released in May, 2016, through Transit Lounge.
Rupetta published by Tartarus Press in 2013, won the James Tiptree, Jr Award for a work that explores and expands our understanding of gender.
I have a PhD in creative writing from Griffith University, and have taught creative writing in the university sector for more than ten years, with regular dips into other forms of work and life (cooking, mostly).
