Unpolished Gem

This story does not begin on a boat. Nor does it contain anything about swans or falling leaves.

It is a wonderland called Footscray, and a girl named Alice and her Chinese-Cambodian family pursue the Australia Dream, Asian style.

Unpolished Gem is a book rich in comedy, a loving and irreverent portrait of a family, its everyday struggles and bittersweet triumphs. With it, Australian writing gains an unforgettable new voice.
