Geoffrey Rush, in his speech as Australian of the Year, put out a call to the writers of Australia, saying that he wanted to see the 'stories of people wanting to come here at great peril to their lives, with such extraordinary bravery', adding that: 'we're not finding that human scale in the story and I think it'd be good if we did that because I think people would discuss the arguments with less overly emotive responses to primal knee-jerk reactions.' Alien Shores is exactly what Geoffrey Rush is calling for. A book ahead of its time, it has stories about refugees and asylum seekers from Linda Jaivin, Arnold Zable, Amitav Ghosh, Jamil Ahmad, Abdul Karim Hekmat, Sophie Masson, Susanne Gervay, Anu Kumar, Deepa Agarwal, Michelle Cahill and many others.
'It is the writer's act of imagination which is the basis of all good fiction, the kind of fiction that opens new worlds to the reader. The power of literature to move people, allow us to see into one another's hearts, to foster compassion and understanding and inspire political action works in a way that almost nothing else does. This anthology Alien Shores edited by Sharon Rundle and Meenakshi Bharat, following on from the success of their first anthology The Fear Factor, does just that. In this unique collaboration between Indian and Australian writers these stories describe the experiences of refugees in powerful and poignant detail.' - from the Foreword by Rosie Scott.
