Lazaroo, S.ORCID: 0000-0001-9859-9119 (1997) Tremors. In: Coffey, B., (ed.) Golden Harvest: Stories of Australian Women. Fremantle Arts Press, pp. 33-41.


Come back, come back, cries the immigrant daughter in Simone Lazaroo's 'Tremors' as she runs down the street of this strange new country in pursuit of her mother who is leaving home. And, in the tradition of her own culture, she wards off the Evil Demons with tokens and promises. As the mother turns back and the child follows her home we can only guess at the price of that sacrifice.
