In this anthology 24 Greek Australian authors from Victoria, NSW and WA participate with a story reflecting on their fathers of migrant background.

It is a well-known fact that father-child relationships can be testing at the best of times, but when you add the migrant experience into the mix, then matters get complicated.

Fathers from the Edge is a companion book to Mothers from the Edge from the Edhe anthology, a book about mothers and daughters. Both books will be available at the launch.

As literature is another form of history, the stories in this anthology contribute towards a better understanding of Australia as a country of many waves of migration.

The book, which has been edited by Helen Nickas will be launched by author Anna Couani while writers George Alexander, Claire Catacouzinos, Anna Couani, Eleni Elefterias-Kostakidis, Zeny Giles, Efi Hatzimanolis, Vrasidas Karalis and Martha Mylona will be present to read an extract from their story, relating how their bitter-sweet experience as migrant sons and daughters has shaped their lives in Australia.

The event will take place on Thursday 12 May at 6.00pm at the The University of Sydney Macleay Museum.
