The third edition of Griffith Review‘s Sunday-reading summer features Holly Ringland’s memoir ‘Might be rainbows’. In this moving memoir, Ringland tells the story of her life-changing trip through remote communities in Western Australia to procure Aboriginal artwork, destroying preconceptions along the way.

Holly Ringland grew up barefoot and wild in her mother’s tropical garden on the east coast of Australia. Her interest in cultures and stories was sparked by a two-year journey her family took in North America when she was nine years old, living in a camper van and travelling from one national park to another. In her twenties, Holly lived and worked for four years in a remote community in the central Australian desert. In 2011 Holly completed her MA in Creative Writing at the University of Manchester.
