Can an award winning scholarly book be a page-turner?

Is the Midrash Methodology the new way of research that restores the soul of the academic?

How does a witness write about experiences in a detention centre and relationships with those who are incarcerated without further silencing and invisibilising them?  

Inside the Yard of Surveillance at Villawood Detention Centre answers are found. What hostilities does a visitor experience when visiting asylum seekers inside a detention centre? At the heart of this book is an examination of the relationship between the free and the locked up. Like a mosaic, a tapestry of fine thought, poetry and theatre are woven together to open new spaces for asylum seeking refugees to inhabit. 

Beyond the Wire is brutally honest showing deep personal insight about the conflicts of an ethical responsibility for the Other.
