AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Although Australia prides itself on being multicultural, many Australians have little awareness of what it means to live in two cultures at once, and of how much there is to learn about other cultural perspectives. Translating Lives is an immensely moving collection of personal stories tracing the experience of twelve people living in Australia who speak more than one language.' - Back cover

Translating Lives 'offers an insight not only into aspects of the Australian migrant experience that have not been addressed before, but also into the cultural perspectives of peoples in the Asia-Pacific region, with contributors who migrated as adults from South and East Asia and the Pacific: China, Singapore, Korea and Fiji' (xx).
