Following on from A Fence around the Cuckoo, this is the second volume of autobiography by one of Australia's best storytellers, Ruth Park, author of The Harp in the South and the Miles Franklin-winning Swords and Crowns and Rings.

About the Author

Born in New Zealand in 1917, Ruth Park spent most of her adult life in Australia. She was widely read and well-loved for her books, which were as equally successful for adults as for children. She is best known for the novels The Harp in the South, Poor Man's Orange and Swords and Crowns and Rings, for which she won the 1977 Miles Franklin Award.


'Read Ruth Park and marvel. She missed nothing.' * Independent *
'Sydney's Dickens...A human dictaphone when it came to the mean yet vibrant lives of the struggling, striving denizens of Surry Hills.' * Geordie WIlliamson, Australian *
'It would be hard to think of a warmer writer.' * Delia Falconer *
