The Glasshouse: Close to Home with Alice Pung

Alice Pung has a knack for finding and writing about the beautiful, weird and often unheard pockets of Australian life. Throughout the years she has complied essays about her experiences from her childhood, her family and Australian life. She joins Beth AQ to chat about her latest memoir Close to Home: Selected Writings. These essays explore they key theme of home and what it means to grow up in a migrant Australian family, but also cover diverse and quirky themes such as being a Buddhist and way so many people now enjoy shopping at Kmart at 3am.
