South African born, Lois Nicholls and her daughter Lara, have produced a book on the trials and tribulations of emigrating to Australia from South Africa.
“Some may say it’s too honest but from the feedback I’ve received so far, people have found it funny and poignant. Migrants of all nationalities have said they relate to the struggles and triumphs. They say they appreciate the honesty as so many people don’t speak about their tribulations – they put on a brave face.” says Lois.
A NEW South African edition, published by Aardvark Press, Cape Town in November 2009 is now available in bookstores in South Africa.
This edition has 5 new chapters including new content which Lois has added to the original chapters.
Aussie, actually, was originally published by Impact Unlimited Books in Australia in 2008 – www.loisnicholls.com.au
