A Shaun Tan book is a joy for ever. Its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness. His words and his artwork really resonate with me. It is right by check-out. Each story could be said to be about the relationship between people and places, especially when that relationship is ruptured by physical displacement, an emotional disconnection, or an otherwise trouble sense of identity; a country invaded by aggressive strangers, a homeless creature, and a girl adrift in the world of her own dark emotions. They are each in their own way tales of loss and recovery, and a question about belonging in the absence of any direct language—where central characters hardly speak—as though some things are too strange, personal, or confronting for words.
