A qualified lawyer and accomplished writer. Alice Pung has written on diverse topics including the role of grandparents, the corrosive effects of racism, the importance of literature and the legacy of her parents’ migration from Cambodia as asylum seekers. In all of this, a central thread is the idea of home – how the places we live and the connections we form shape who we become and what homecoming can mean to those who build their lives in Australia.
Alice’s latest book is Close to Home – Selected Writings
