          Sinopsis
          This story does not begin on a boat. Nor does it contain any wild swans or falling leaves.In a wonderland called Footscray, a girl named Alice and her Chinese-Cambodian family pursue the Australian Dream – Asian style. Armed with an ocker accent, Alice dives head- first into schooling, romance and the getting of wisdom. Her mother becomes an Aussie battler – an outworker, that is. Her father embraces the miracle of franchising and opens an electrical-appliance store. And every day her grandmother blesses Father Government for giving old people money.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.Winner of the Australian Newcomer of the Year Award in the 2007 Australian Book Industry AwardsShortlisted 2007 Australian Book Industry Awards, 2007 NSW Premier's Literary Awards, 2007 Victorian Premier's Literary Awards, 2007 Age Book of the Year Awards, 2006 Colin Roderick Award and the 2007 The Westfield/Waverley Library Award for Literature‘Unpolished Gem is a delightful read – a funny, touching debut from a writer we’re sure to hear more from.’ —ourier Mail‘Offer(s) a rare bicultural vantage point on Australian multiculturalism’ —Sydney Morning Herald‘There’s something striking on every page of Unpolished Gem.’ —Helen Garner‘A memoir so vivid that images from it linger behind your eyelids.’ —The Age‘Alice Pung is a gem.
