's review

it was amazing

Geraldine Brooks is one of my favorite authors, so when I stumbled over this one by her that I had somehow missed, I was thrilled. It is a memoir of her 1950s and 60s childhood in Australia, where she and her family lived in a couple of suburbs on the western edge of Sydney, definitely not a fashionable address. She decides to seek out pen pals in far-flung places in order to discover how others her age are living around the world, and this key event in her life resonates right through to the present day.

I loved the book...no surprise there. As always, she writes with wonderful clarity and insight, sharing honestly what her life has been like and how her interactions with others have affected who she is. Another lovely read from Ms. Brooks...thank you!
