"Birds of Passage is an unusual and exciting novel, written from a unique angle: that of a Westernised, Australian-Chinese mind on a collision course with the past Seamus O'Young (an Australian born Chinese) reconstructs his past through the eyes of his ancestor, Shan, who came to Australia in the 1880's.
In many ways, the experience of the two characters parallel each other, just as Shan struggles ashore in a strange land, and makes his way through the wilds to the Victorian goldfields, so Seamus's own life begins to change and his mind to be affected by the anguish of his forerunner, adrift in an alien and dangerous society."
