    'Asian-Australians have often been written about by outsiders, as outsiders. In this collection, they tell their own stories with verve, courage and a large dose of humour.

    'Here are well-known authors and exciting new voices, spanning several generations and drawn from all over Australia. They tell tales of leaving home, falling in love, coming out and finding one's feet. In sharing their stories, they show us what it is really like to grow up Asian and Australian.'
