Zoya Patel is a Fijian-Indian, who came to Australia when she was three - a heritage which has left her with a sense of not really belonging anywhere. She describes this estrangement as "a hyphenated life". Her book, No Country Woman: A memoir of not belonging is a collection of essays on race, feminism, religion and family - and searching for identity. She was in her mid-teens when she set up the website Feminartsy, an online feminist arts and literature journal, she was the former editor-in-chief of Lip Magazine, and she studied gender studies at the Australian National University in Canberra. She is coming to Aotearoa next month for LitCrawl Wellington.
