Few have lived a life as rich or as colourful as Robin Dalton. In 1965 her bestselling memoir Aunts Up the Cross was published and has now become an Australian classic.
An Incidental Memoir is the long-awaited second volume in Robin Dalton's memoirs. At the age of 17, Robin Eakin visited a fortune teller in Kings Cross who told her, 'You will spend your life travelling, and you will have 3 husbands and 2 children.'
All of these things have come to pass in the remarkable life of this fascinating woman who has lived all over the world and done all manner of things. Robin has been a literary agent, a spy for the Thai government and, more recently, a successful film producer with movies like Oscar and Lucinda to her credit. This book is a beautifully written, absorbing and passionate account of the author's many travels and travails since we last met her in Aunts Up the Cross. (publisher blurb)
She was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in 2013 and turned 100 in 2020.
