Some Other Mother  

Some Other Mother $19.95 ex GST
$21.95 inc GST

High up in a Glasgow tower block, ten-year-old Star and her mother await the outcome of their claim for asylum. As Mama’s mind fragments under the pressure of their unknown future, Star constructs a poetic and fantastical world of her own.

Some Other Mother is a story of loss and survival, which explores the traumatising impact of the asylum system, regardless of the outcome.
