One Hundred Days by award-winning writer Alice Pung is literary fiction at its best. This mother-daughter drama and fractured fairytale explores the faultlines between love and control and throws up issues for the reader to reflect on. It is an exploration of the complex relationships in Asian Australian families that have, until now, rarely featured in Australian fiction.
Pung’s writing is lyrical and masterful and this is her first novel aimed at an adult audience, although mature Senior Fiction readers will appreciate it as well. Book Club notes are provided on the publisher’s website, as this is sure to be a favourite for discussion.
