Split Lives: Croatian Australian Stories
Edited by Val Colic-Peisker
Migrating to another country is comparable to surviving a war or becoming a parent: it splits life into two parts — before and after — and changes it forever. The stories collected in this book are told by Croatians who migrated to Australia between 1949 and 1996. With captivating frankness and humour, the storytellers share their intimate knowledge of Croatia and their early views of Australia.
