Time to repost this blog post from 2014.

I borrowed this book from the library.  I had read a great deal in the media about this book a few years ago but only now have I got round to borrowing it.

the happiest refugee

Australia, at the moment is going through a period where petty politics is playing a large part when it comes to people seeking asylum here. I wont get into the debate but I will say that Australia is a huge country and surely there is enough room and resources for those seeking asylum.  

Anh Do is an Australian comedian and started off by doing shows on what it was like to be an immigrant in an immigrant family in Australia.

His book tells of his life as he grew up in Australia as a poor, Vietnamese refugee.  He also tells how his family escaped Vietnam in a boat and the difficulties that entailed.

This is a very easy book to read…
