'Alice Pung is a gem. Her voice is the real thing.' -Amy Tan

At twenty-something, Alice is eager for the milestones of adulthood: leaving home, choosing a career, finding friendship and love on her own terms. But with each step she takes she feels the sharp tug of invisible threads: the love and worry of her parents, who want more than anything to keep her from harm. Her father fears for her safety to an extraordinary degree - but why? As she digs further into her father's story, Alice embarks on a journey of painful discovery: of memories lost and found, of her own fears for the future, of history and how it echoes down the years.

Set in Melbourne, China and Cambodia, Her Father's Daughter captures a father-daughter relationship in a moving and astonishingly powerful way.

'A beautiful exploration of father-daughter relationships' Vogue 'Remarkably tender and thoughtful' The Sunday Age

'Pung has an extraordinary story to tell and the finesse to bring it, most movingly, to the page.' The Monthly

She edited the anthology Growing Up Asian in Australia and her work has appeared in the Monthly, Good Weekend, the Age, The Best Australian Stories and Meanjin.
