Unpolished gem by Alice Pung( Sound Recording )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 68 libraries worldwide
"This story does not begin on a boat." So commences Alice Pung's memoir. This is an original take on a classic story, how a child of immigrants moves between two cultures. In place of piety and predictability, however, Unpolished Gem offers a vivid and ironic sense of both worlds. It combines the story of Pung's life growing up in suburban Footscray with the inherited stories of the women in her family, stories of madness, survival and heartbreak. Original and brave, this is a girl's own story that introduces an unforgettable voice and captures the experience of Asian immigrants to Australia

This is a powerful memoir of the nightmarish three years Rebekah endured as she was repeatedly misdiagnosed, only to realise that her medication was the cause of her mental deterioration.

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
When Paula Constant and her husband, Gary, break away from the conventional 9-to-5 routine in Australia, a few weeks lazing in a resort is not what they have in mind. What starts out as a daydream of 'a travel to end all travels' turns into something far greater: an epic year-long 5000-kilometre walk from Trafalgar Square in London to Morocco and the threshold of the Sahara Desert. Quite an ambition for an unfit woman who enjoys late nights sharing cigarettes and a few bottles of wine with friends
A brief history of Montmaray by Michelle Cooper( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
Sixteen can be a tough time. And it's almost unmanageable for a wise-cracking boy whose temper is white-hot. As a consequence he is sentenced to a time-out with his reclusive grandfather in a primitive shack in the Tasmanian forest. There is little to do except chop wood and watch the red-eyed wallabies gather at dusk. They are an unlikely couple: a taciturn old man who prefers the simple life, and a volatile boy addicted to the technology of the 21st century and yet a bond blossoms between them. But denied access to much he desires, and feeling provoked by a local cop cynical of city folk, the boy's frustration grows. And when he encounters situations he can't control anything could happen

My life as a traitor by Zarah Ghahramani( Sound Recording )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
Zarah Ghahramani was born in Tehran in 1981, two years after Ayatollah Khomeini returned to Iran to establish the Islamic Republic. Her life changed suddenly in 2001 when, after having taken part in student demonstrations, she was arrested (literally snatched off the street by secret police) and charged with "inciting crimes against the people of the Islamic Republic of Iran." While imprisoned in Tehran's notorious Evin Prison she faced brutal interrogation: her head was shaved, and she was beaten. After being released, she was forbidden to return to university, and soon realized that she had no future in her native land. Robert Hillman, an Australian writer, met and befriended Zarah in Iran in 2003, and helped her to escape to Australia, where she now has permanent residency. My Life As a Traitor is a beautifully written memoir of Zarah's life in Iran, revealing the human face behind the turmoil of the modern Middle East
