Riding the Wave description

In Andrew Pippos’ lively debut Lucky’s, his eponymous soldier stays in Sydney after World War II to forge a life amongst the Greek diaspora and the homey diners they establish on each corner, to which he adds with a string of initially successful franchises. The Coconut Children is an evocative coming of age story of a schoolgirl and a community, written in and about contemporary Cabramatta by the prodigiously talented 19 year-old Vivian Pham. These compelling, vibrant stories remind us how Australia is shaped and lifted by the waves of immigration that reach our shores.
