Alien Shores: Tales of Refugees and Asylum Seekers from Australia and the Indian Subcontinent

Sharon Rundle, Meenakshi Bharat

Geoffrey Rush, in his speech as Australian of the Year, put out a call to the writers of Australia, saying that he wanted to see the ‘stories of people wanting to come here at great peril to their lives, with such extraordinary bravery’, adding that: ‘we’re not finding that human scale in the story and I think it’d be good if we did that because I think people would discuss the arguments with less overly emotive responses to primal knee-jerk reactions.’ Alien Shores is exactly what Geoffrey Rush is calling for. A book ahead of its time, it has stories about refugees and asylum seekers from Linda Jaivin, Arnold Zable, Amitav Ghosh, Jamil Ahmad, Abdul Karim Hekmat, Sophie Masson, Susanne Gervay, Anu Kumar, Deepa Agarwal, Michelle Cahill and many others.
