This week Cheryl is joined by Sofija Stefanovic to talk about her novel Miss Ex-Yugoslavia, a funny, dark and tender memoir about growing up between the lunacy of Yugoslavia’s civil war and suburban Australia. Together they talk about her life in Australia as an immigrant child, and having to navigate her own identity as both the “Australian Girl’ and the “Serbian Girl”.
