Book Review:


All That's Left Unsaid by Tracey Lien this novel because i really wanted to challenge the myth of the model minority growing up in australia in the cava mata area i was told from a really young age that you're as aussie as they come that you belong you'll get a fair go and that australia really values multiculturalism then i realized at some point that 

This wasn't quite true and that it didn't apply to me or to people who looked like me i realized that my citizenship was conditional it was conditional on my gratitude it was conditional on my impeccable behavior and if i ever did anything to step out of line then i risked being perceived as a nuisance or worse a threat now we've seen a version of 

This play out in america recently where asian americans once thought of as the country's success stories were almost overnight viewed as threats to public health or carriers of the kung flu and to be on the receiving end of this sort of hate and fear it's frustrating it's confusing 

It's hurtful but one of the things that has been left unsaid for a long time is that it's also dangerous and that's what the title of the novel refers to it's about the unspoken consequences of anti-asian sentiment 

But it's also about so many other things that are often left unsaid like the responsibility that the children of refugees and immigrants feel that they have for their parents how we withhold information to protect those we love 

But it's also about how no community is a monolith you know we often hear of asian australians or asian americans or rural white farmers being spoken of as if there are these monolithic blocks who all think the same way and feel the same way when 

The reality is we're just like everyone else we're just as complicated and stubborn and smart and goofy and funny we're just as capable of failure and so my normal tackles a lot of these heavy issues but it was important to me that 

This could be a fun read which is why i borrowed a lot from the conventions of murder mysteries so as you're reading with each chapter you're getting closer and closer to finding out what happened on the night of kei's brother's murder and who did it and why they did it and why no one will speak 

So i'm gonna read a short snippet from about you know in the middle of the novel um it's from the point of view of a woman named sharon faulkner she is a very well-intentioned white woman um who was there the night that key's brother was murdered she's a high school teacher and the reason 

I wanted to read from this chapter is because i think her chapter illustrates how even the most well-intentioned people can get it wrong and also the tension that was inherent in this community at the time of the story 

So this is a short snippet from chapter five when the first indochinese refugees arrived in australia sharon faulkner was a high schooler in sydney's inner west who had seen asian people only in photos on the news and in world war ii textbooks that showed propaganda posters of the japanese as buck toothed rats when 

The first indo-chinese refugees left the commonwealth migrant hostels in villawood fairy meadow east hills mayfield and dundas equipped with a handful of english phrases hello how are you very good thank you 

What'd it mean a distaste for porridge and the newly acquired knowledge that they couldn't digest cow's milk sharon faulkner was on her way to newcastle farther north to study education with a cohort that was completely middle-class anglo-saxon protestant and when the first indo-chinese refugees settled 

In cabramatta opened the first fur restaurants established the first vietnamese grocery stores that sold packets of dehydrated rice noodles bottles of pungent fish sauce and tubs of nose prickling spices sharon faulkner accepted 

A job straight out of university at a high school in hay some 725 kilometers from sydney town population 1300 hay was a comfortable place for sharon faulkner to teach in a place like hay teachers were on a first name basis with parents and the kids themselves weren't too different from her 

They all burned easily in the sun watched cricket on boxing day and used the term mate in a passive aggressive manner to signal that they'd run out of patience sit down and shut up me but sharon was a city girl at heart 

She wasn't made for hayes scorching summers or the vast ring of nothing that surrounded the town and stretched for hundreds of kilometers in all directions the first time she saw a tumbleweed she ran out of her cottage and pajamas and a pair of flip-flops to follow

It giddy to see where it would go a neighbor's driveway she never thought they were actually real by the second third fourth and fifth time they rolled by her house by her classroom window or alongside her 1981 toyota crawler hatchback as she drove down hayes quiet roads they reminded her only of how far 

he was from the tree-lined suburbs she so dearly missed with the milk bars run by greeks and italians the diversity of colorful neighborhoods where heads of rich brown hair dotted a sea of blondes with olive skinned blokes 

who said use when they really meant to say you sharon spent three years in hay she took the first transfer available to a metropolitan school in a suburb with a name that she thought sounded italian when the first indo-chinese refugees motherless and farmless found o

ne another in south west sydney banded together created their chosen family them against the world when they enrolled in high school without understanding a word the teachers said when the parents who came with babies and toddlers raised them as best as they could.
