Aussie, Actually: A Woman's Honest an/Nicholls, Lois/Paper/0980486807/S017-E
Lois Nicholls is 3 months pregnant. With husband and clingy toddler in tow, she sets off from Durban, South Africa, to a sweltering Brisbane, arriving on Australia Day 1997. She is not prepared for the sheer magnitude of the move but battles on in a fog of homesickness using humour to get by.
Aussie, Actually is a warts and all account of Lois’s eleven year sojourn as a migrant wife and mother living in Brisbane, Australia. Illustrated by her 10 year old daughter, Lara, the book’s 22 chapters capture her humorous and honest life experiences living as a new Australian.
