Shortlisted Adelaide Festival Award for Non-fiction, 2002 .
The dry humour and intimate tone make this a most seductive memoir. Shirley Walker writes of the insularity of small towns, the rigid class and caste divisions, and the terrible effects of two world wars on many families.
Her powers of observation and analysis, combined with her elegant style, has resulted in an original book that is truly rewarding to read. "The style is so clear, so dryly funny, and so beautifully visual it is an absolute delight to read" Julian Croft
