About the Book

Funny Ethnics is a wry coming-of age story, set in the sprawling suburbs of Western Sydney.  The book blends hilarity and heartbreak into a visceral story of life on the fringes. The book is published by Affirm Press and was shortlisted for The Age Fiction Book of the Year 2023.

Shirley Le is a member of Sweatshop: Western Sydney Literacy Movement and was the recipient of the inaugural Sweatshop mentorship with publisher Affirm Press in 2018. Her short stories and essays have been published in SBS Voices, Overland, The Guardian, Meanjin, and Another Australia.
