The Taste Of Apple
from the book...
Pedro Jones is lost. Abandoned by his father and forced into commission housing with his Filipino immigrant mother, the future seems bleak.
But when Pedro meets the 'mad' street busker, Johnny Lazzaro, and gets involved with the East Timor freedom movement, life takes an unexpected detour through the uncharted backblocks of the human heart.
James Laidler deftly crafts a cast of vivid characters in this gritty story of self discovery, justice and belonging.
