"Oh Lucky Country (Paese fortunato) uses first-person point of view to inflate migrant oppression to such absurdist proportions that its swirling narrative boils over into a maelstrom, washing away all migrant cliches. It is a witty, tragi-comic view of Australian society, culture and prejudice." --Sydney University Press / SETIS.

"...frank and controversial account of 20th-century migrant experience." --Minister for Communications, Information Technology and the Arts, 2003 (Hon. Daryl Williams, AM QC MP).
