Although there are 22 separate Arab nationalities representing a wide variety of cultural backgrounds and experiences, the perception of Arabs in Australia has largely ranged from a homogenising one (at best), to one that plays on pop-culture caricatures of a deviant, hyper-masculine, uncivilised, savage Arab.
Edited by award-winning author and academic Randa Abdel-Fattah and activist and poet Sara Saleh, this collection explores growing up as a member of the Arab diaspora in Australia and includes stories of family, this country, times past, grief, belonging, identity, confusion and isolation.
