RICE

$24.95

Everyone has problems to deal with – in the boardroom or the basement, global or local, business or personal. Two multicultural women making their way in modern Australia forge a powerful, if unlikely, friendship that gets results.

Working late, high up in a skyscraper, Nisha – at 28, a business prodigy and second- in-command of an Australian rice company – is closing a massive deal with the Indian government. Working later still is Yvette, who clears up her takeaway.

“Indian princess” and “Chinese cleaner” is all they see when they face each other across the desk. They’re from different cultures, different generations – but as the nights wear on, they discover the many ties that bind them, and help each other navigate their complex lives.

Brimming with sharp observations on globalisation, power, politics, and migration as well as plenty of wicked humour, Rice won Michele Lee the Queensland Premier’s Drama Award 2016-2017.
