Gary Lonesborough: The Boy From the Mish

Exploring who you are takes a lot of courage. Yuin writer Gary Lonesborough’s first book The Boy from the Mish is a funny and big-hearted queer Indigenous young adult novel set in a rural Australian community. It’s a branch of hope extended to teenagers who think they’re alone. Benjamin Law speaks to Gary about this beautifully written story about finding love – and yourself.
