A WALK IN MY SKIN [a book of 32 stories]

This book is an interesting collation of stories based in the 1950s and 1960s. If you want to walk through those years or to re-live those times, you will really love this book. They are about a Greek migrant and his family's experiences in a country town, Hamilton, Victoria. Readers will will easily connect, as each of us has experienced the human condition of adjusting to a new environment and getting on with life!


The stories are an honest telling of what can happen to people as they settle into a new country, with a different culture, and try to learn Aussie English! [Idioms and slang are used throughout the stories.] The book would appeal to those who enjoy reading of real-life experiences from recent Australian history. Many Australians will recall the events mentioned in the stories and perhaps relive their youth! It would also appeal to migrants who can relate to the experiences and to teachers and students who would enjoy sharing them in class discussions and with friends. Issues raised include: assimilation, self-identity, racism, intolerance, bullying, sexism, compulsive disorders and arranged marriages.
