Take Home Reading is a new short-form audio series for readers and writers – shining a spotlight on Australian writers with recently released books. In each instalment, you’ll be introduced to a writer, learn a little about what they’ve been reading lately, and hear a short reading from their latest work. 
For the first batch of episodes, we’ve partnered with our friends at the Emerging Writers’ Festival to spotlight four brilliant new voices from around Australia writing across fiction, memoir and poetry. 
In this episode we’re talking to Vivian Pham about her debut novel, The Coconut Children. 
The Coconut Children tells the fierce and moving story of Sonny and Vince, both children of refugees living in Cabramatta in 1998. 
'They’re both growing up and trying to figure out who they are, but they’re also trying to understand their parents. It's through the stories that their parents tell them that they feel a connection towards their culture and their ancestors... It’s equally about how the stories that are withheld from them shape who they are, and the way they see themselves.'
The Coconut Children is out now through Penguin Random House.
