    From the Editor's Introduction: 'It may be questioned whether there can be any such thing as "multicultural writing" and indeed this anthology does not purport to represent any such thing. But the Multicultural Writers Group is an attempt to overcome the isolation of those whose writing takes place against a background of difference: different language, different background, different points of reference, different heritage. [...]

    [W]hen the authors represented here offer us their work, we encounter something new, something fresh and surprising. We suddenly see the world from another angle. Our conventions and assumptions are jolted into accepting new dimensions. And this is the best possible thing that could happen to Australian writing' (pp. 1, 2).
