James and Ashley interview Nash, artist and author of 'What to Expect When You're Immigrating,' a hilarious and insightful commentary on the Australian immigration process. In it, they discuss using humour to cope with stressful situations, the challenges faced by new arrivals to Australia, and the commonalities between Sri Lanka and Melbourne (hint: its pigeons).

Follow Nash on Instagram, and buy a copy of 'What to Expect When You're Immigrating' from your local bookshop, Booktopia, or wherever else books are sold.

Books discussed in this episode:

  • Halibut on the Moon by David Vann
  • When Marnie Was There by Joan G Robinson
  • Glenn Loury & John McWhorter (technically YouTubers, not authors)

Nash will be in conversation with Mark Mariano for a live-streamed event via City of Marion Libraries at 2:30pm (ACST) on April 13 2021. Get more information or book a place here.
