Works about this Work

Southeast Asian Diaspora Writers in Australia and the Consequence of Community-Based Initiatives Jose Wendell Capili , 2007 single work criticism
— Appears in: From the Editors : Migrant Communities and Emerging Australian Literature 2007; (p. 7-19)
The author writes: 'Quite often, literary cultures across Australia will not appreciate works by community-based Southeast Asian diaspora writers. This is just part of the challenge. On the whole, community-based Southeast Asian diaspora writers are also confronted with the problem of finding steadier audiences that will collectively endure exotic, unfamiliar or unpopular themes and issues relating to Southeast Asians vis-á-vis Australia. [...] While frequently isolated from many literary audiences, records of each writer's literary texts and attempts, commentaries, letters and position papers are integral to empirical and theoretical explorations about the emergence of Souteast Asian diaspora writers in Australia' (8). This article represents a contribution to that record.
My Long Journey with New and Emerging Vietnamese-Australian Writers Ngọc-Tuấn Hoàng , 2002-2007 single work criticism
