Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Oh gosh I was disappointed in this book! I had to track it down because I was really inspired to read it by my interest in all things Australian recently. But..... this is not an autobiography in any sense of the word; it consists of bits and pieces of information about places where Malouf has lived over the years, and the writing seems almost flight of fancy.... I guess it's based on truth? I was very disappointed because of ALL the fabulous autobiographical writing to come out of Australia. This doesn't measure up by a long shot. Sorry. I hate to give poor reviews, but I also hate being disappointed in books....
