    A blend of history, cultural studies and memoir, Australian Gypsies is a warm work of non-fiction that looks to a part of Australian history that has long been left out of the conventional narrative. Sayer tracks the experiences of the Roma in Australia, from the arrival of beer enthusiast James Squire in 1785 to the modern-day Gypsy families that she meets and interviews. Including sections dedicated to the Roma’s traditions and customs, along with a language glossary, intimate colour photographs, and even a recipe for an Australian Gypsy Stew, Sayer’s genuine curiosity and respect for her subject matter is evident throughout the book and her clear-eyed approach confidently dispels many of the myths surrounding the Roma.
