Journal Entry 1 by wingmeganhwing from Preston, Victoria Australia on Sunday, February 11, 2024
One of many books gifted to me by my daughter’s employer for Bookcrossing.
Read this nearly 20 years ago, an Australian classic -
A very interesting read. Snippets of Lillian's life put together in short chapters progressing from her earliest memories as a tiny girl until her old age as a huge eccentric homeless woman who was known wherever she went in Sydney. The story of a fat girl from a wealthy family who was teased by her friends and father seemed fairly insipid until the chapter when she insinuated that her father raped her. From then (and I do remember that it is a novel, I wanted to know how her life panned out.
An excellent Vogel prize winner - I shall seek out more of her work.
