This is an extract from Prickly Pear: A Memoir (a work in progress). It is a creative work, a contemporary memoir, that aims to create an intimate experience of the world inhabited by the migrant family. It places the experience of being a migrant in a dialogue with the experience of being a first-generation Australian and draws out the complexities and the fluid and shifting nature of identity—especially for migrants and their children.
