Feedback for an article in which Vu was featured

I just want to say how much I enjoyed reading the Yin & Yang about Carina Hoang and Vu Do (11/5). Especially after we had just been to their book launch at the South Perth Library and met them both, and Vu's wife and family. His is truly an inspirational story, giving an insight into what it must have been like as an eight-year-old Vietnamese boat person, his struggles - and how he has made a success of his life in Australia, through hard work and his recognition of family being the most important thing in his life.

What a heartwarming read your Yin & Yang was. As the daughter of Italian immigrants, I have heard of the hardships my parents faced coming to a new country. I can't even begin to imagine how difficult it was for Carina and Vu to make their respective journeys to Australia as refugees. What an inspirational pair. It just goes to show that with a dream and a lot of hard work you can make anything happen for you in Australia; it truly is the lucky country. I am looking forward to reading Vu's Taste for Life.

What an extraordinary, moving and uplifting sotry of Carina and Vu. Two amazing people who have carved out their separate destinies but with a strong bond created by their experiences of loss, alienation and suffering. All we grumbling, whining Aussies should read it and weep! Did Vu find his father, and when and how did he finally learn to cry? It's like a missing piece of the jigsaw that I must find! I hope the answer is to be found in the book.
