'Aussie, Actually' is a humorous and honest account of what it's really like to emigrate to Australia

While this is not a ‘how to’ on emigration, it does cover many pertinent issues an expat may encounter: What schools to choose? Where to live? The agony of moving – again, the old school tie connections and the ongoing split allegiance and yearning for immediate family and old friends. Lois does not for a moment romanticise about life away from her familiar surroundings. If anything, she tells it like it is – even owning up to avoiding the annual Christmas letter for fear of not measuring up to her glamorous counterparts in other parts of the world. Most of all, this short, snappy book delightfully illustrated by her daughter, Lara, allows established Australians a tiny glimpse of an immigrant’s impression of living Down Under. It will also strike a chord with new and established immigrants who will no doubt relate to many of the humorous episodes mentioned in the book.
