Interview: Building Australia's immigrant literary tradition

SITKA, ALASKA Alice Pung's parents fled the Killing Fields of Cambodia and landed in Australia. Her memoir of resettlement in Australia — as seen through the experiences of her family — came out in 2007. “Unpolished Gem” catapulted the young attorney to literary prominence in her family's new home. Pung, and Island Institute co-director Carolyn Servid, joined KCAW's Robert Woolsey to discuss “Unpolished Gem” and other recent work.
