Her Father’s Daughter – Alice Pung

Posted on October 6th, 2011 by in Adults, Biography, Memoir

Set in Melbourne, China and Cambodia, Her Father’s Daughter from Alice Pung captures a father-daughter relationship in a moving and astonishingly powerful way.

At twenty-something, Alice is hungry for the milestones of young womanhood: leaving home, choosing a career, finding friendship and love on her own terms. But with each step she takes away from home, she feels the sharp tug of invisible threads: the love and worry of her Chinese-Cambodian parents, who want more than anything to keep her from harm. Her father fears for her safety to an extraordinary degree – but why? As she digs further into her father’s story, Alice embarks on a journey of painful discovery: of memories lost and found, of her own fears for the future, of history and how it echoes down the years. – Requesting prices
