Dominic Hong Duc Golding

Published by Currency Press

2 Male 3 Female

Vietnamese war-baby Dominic Hong Duc Golding was airlifted out of Saigon at the end of the Vietnam War and adopted into an Australian family in Mount Gambier

In 1999, he returned to Vietnam for his own tour of duty

Shrimp is a tour de force theatrical autobiography, taking us to the streets of war-torn Saigon, the wet pastures of Mount Gambier and the varied landscapes of modern Vietnam where Dom returns to find his family

Reflecting upon his rural upbringing and the chaos of Saigon, the partially-hearing impaired (due to mortar fire) Dom tries to reconcile his battle over footy, fish sauce and finding himself

"What makes Golding so impressive is that he compels the audience to imagine what it is like to be him ... [Shrimp] is frenetic and funny, discomfiting and deeply affecting" ~ The Age
