AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'IN 2006, Helen Nickas, a Greek-Australian, published an anthology titled Mothers from the Edge, a collection of tributes by twenty-eight Greek-Australian women to their mothers. Nine years later, Fathers from the Edge appeared: in this anthology both men and women, twenty-four in number, write about their fathers, who are or were invariably immigrants to Australia. Some of these men were twice displaced, and many were witnesses to unspeakable horrors, being of the generation whose childhood and youth were deeply affected by the German occupation and the Greek Civil War. Both anthologies feature writing that is simply and directly expressed, while being often deeply introspective. In recollecting their relationships with their parents, the writers wrestle with problems both past and present.'  (Introduction)
