    In a sense, certainly this book is about horror, which is implied by the title That Deadman Dance, but it can be analyzed more precisely—technically the novel seems to be about the horror of experiencing people whose culture is so different that it makes the Americans wonder about their own cultural assumptions.   Review: 'That Deadman Dance' Kim Scott's new novel That Deadman Dance explores the historic first meetings of the aboriginal peoples of Australia and European settlers in the early 19th century.

      Winner of the Miles Franklin Literary Award Big-hearted, moving and richly rewarding, That Deadman Dance is set in the first decades of the 19th century in the area around what is now Albany, Western Australia. In playful, musical prose, the book explores the early contact between the Aboriginal Noongar people and the first European settlers/5(4). That Deadman Dance Review Although I am quite familiar with the history of western expansion in the United States, "That Deadman Dance" by Kim Scott was my first exposure to the history of early contacts between the British (the horizon people) and the indigenous people of southwestern Australia (the Noongar).

    Essay by Patrick Allington. The shortlist for the Miles Franklin Literary Award, which included Kim Scott’s That Deadman Dance, was controversial because it consisted of only three novels, all written by exclusion of women writers for that year itself was noteworthy: for example, Fiona McGregor’s fine novel of Sydney, Indelible Ink (Scribe), did not even appear on the longlist. That Deadman Dance has won several awards, including the Miles Franklin Award and the Commonwealth Writers' Prize for Fiction – regional winner. Kim lives in Coolbellup, Western Australia, and is currently employed at the Curtin Health .
