Cat Thao Nguyen — We Are Here

Tom Keneally Centre Reading

Cat Thao Nguyen recounts the poignant and compelling story of her family’s horrific flight from persecution in Vietnam on foot across the killing fields of Cambodia, and their life as new migrants in 1980s Australia.

The escape of Cat Thao’s family from persecution traverses the horrific jungles of Khmer Rouge Cambodia and into the crowded Thai refugee camps from which, finally, the Nguyens were allowed to board a Qantas plane to a freedom they desperately wanted. But the stark, contrasting suburban landscapes of Western Sydney were not the unalloyed blessing they had imagined.
