This delightful collection brings together Alice Pung's most loved writing, on migration, family, identity, art and more. Warm, funny, moving and unfailingly honest, this is Alice Pung at her best - an irresistible delight for fans and new readers alike.

In 2006, Alice Pung published Unpolished Gem, her award-winning memoir of growing up Chinese-Australian in working-class Footscray. 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 thread is the idea of 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.

'Alice Pung is a gem. Her voice is the real thing.' -Amy Tan
