Crows Nest.: Allen & Unwin.. 2005.. Suitable for secondary and above. "A collection of stories that present an insight into a culture that remains mysterious to many non-Lebanese Muslims. The authors are independent women who want to break down the stereotypes and tell stories about the dilemmas they face as Lebanese Muslim women in Australia. "We call the obsession with collecting household items for married life the 'glory garage syndrome.' We're talking serious shopping here and it affects many Lebanese girls long before an engagement ring is on their finger. A generation ago, our parents migrated to Australia as young men and women, leaving their families behind in Lebanon. They worked hard in factories and shops and taxis in their new country. We were born here and consider ourselves Australian, but we don't want to deny our Lebanese heritage. At times we feel like we live in two worlds. We are torn between two cultures, when we want to be both." In these fascinating and candid real-life stories, journalists Nadia Jamal and Taghred Chandab reveal the dilemmas of young people trying to be true to the values of their parents and also to themselves."
