A Hyphenated Life
Lula Saunders has written a heart-warming memoir, which brings to life a migrant experience of living in two cultures in Australian society. From a Greek café in a country town to urban Sydney we accompany her journey, sometimes confusing, sometimes challenging, often amusing, but always enriching. The writing is superb, I envy her that enrichment.

About the Author
Lula (Stavroula) Saunders grew up in the White Rose Café in the small NSW town of Cootamundra, followed by ten years in the Capitol Café Adelong, on the foothillls of the Snowy Mountains. Her move to Sydney meant leaving behind her café world and moving into a world of words and books; first in a Christian Bookshop, then several years at the University Co-op Bookshop. This was followed by being appointed as the first Cultural Diversity Co-ordinator at the Australian Museum and later at the National Maritime Museum. Other stories for other times.
