"Have you ever had doubts about your identity and presentation? Have you ever been confused because of your skin colour, language or culture ... and asked yourself, how exactly do I fit in under the same sky in a white world?" Listen to these powerful spoken words in

Moon Orchard: an audiobook anthology

"You will find contemporary Asian perspectives–an idea, a path, a direction."
A mother’s own childhood experiences of bigotry are triggered when her son is picked on for the colour of his skin. Another mother pre-judges a parent at the school drop-off on the basis of her appearance. A disparate group of travellers on the trans-Siberian railway in the 1930s share memories of Chinese culture, history and politics. And an Australian-Chinese visitor finds herself both fascinated and estranged riding a subway in modern-day China.
Moon Orchard presents a range of Asian Australian voices exploring identity and experience in a variety of writing styles from prose to poetry to spoken word.
