Description

A BRILLIANT COLLECTION FROM ONE OF AUSTRALIA'S LEADING WRITERS Close to Home brings together Alice Pung's most loved writing, on topics such as migration, family, art, belonging and identity. Warm, funny, moving and unfailingly honest, this is Alice at her best - an irresistible pleasure for fans and new readers alike. In 2006, Alice Pung published Unpolished Gem, her award-winning memoir of growing up Chinese-Australian in Melbourne's western suburbs. Since then, she has written on everything from the role of grandparents?to the corrosive effects of racism; from the importance of literature to the legacy of her parents' migration from Cambodia as asylum seekers. In all?of this, a central idea is home- how the places we live and the connections we form shape who we become, and what homecoming can mean to those who build their lives in Australia. 'Most people have an idea of home as a place of comfort and safety. But it is more than that. Your home is a place where your suffering can take shelter.' -ALICE PUNG
