Growing Up Asian in Australia

In this collection, Asian-Australians tell their stories with verve, courage, and a large dose of humour. They tell tales of leaving home, falling in love, coming out and finding one’s feet. A young Cindy Pan vows to win every single category of Nobel Prize, Tony Ayres blows a kiss to a skinhead and lives to tell the tale. Benjamin Law has a close encounter with some angry Australian fauna, and Kylie Kwong makes a moving pilgrimage to her great-grandfather’s Chinese village.
Here are well known authors and exciting new voices, spanning several generations and drawn from all over Australia. In sharing their stories, they show us what it is really like to grow up Asian in Australia.
Compiled by award-winning author Alice Pung, contributors include:
Cindy Pan, Tony Ayres, Kylie Kwong, Jason Yat-Sen Li, Anh Do, Jenny Kee, Annette Shun-Wah, Shaun Tan and Tanveer Ahmed.
