They offer insights into the cultural, linguistic and literary adjustments the migrant has to make, revealing an evolving sense of self and place. They also uncover narratives linking Australia and Singapore, and provide new mappings of being simultaneously Asian and Australian. [From Trove record] Singapore : Firstfruits , 2006 pg. 16-17
