'You Belong Here' is a novel of interlinked stories following the Slater family through the years 1974-2002, exploring first
isolation and young parenthood in sections relating to the parents Jen and Jason, and then love, loss and legacy in the lives of
each of the three children.
'Autobiography and masculinity in "You belong here"' reflects on creative and stylistic decisions while writing the fiction and
discusses the challenges inherent in attempting a semi-autobiographical, multi-character narrative about loss and legacy in a
contemporary Australian family.
