    This is a collection of four short stories by African people living in Australia and looking at both Africa and Australia I loved the story of being a security guard by Yirga Gelew Woldeyes and how it showed how it is to be an outsider if you an Ethiopian immigrant or anyone The other stories gave fantastic comparisons of the lives they had in Africa compared to those they have in Australia.Well worth the read.
