9780522857474: My Father's Daughter: Memories of an Australian Childhood

A personal memoir by the daughter of journalist and radical historian Brian Fitzpatrick, this meditation reveals a complex portrait of an Australian family against a Cold War backdrop. Told with piercing insight, this recollection chronicles Sheila's relationship with her father as it fades from girlhood adoration to adolescent skepticism, resulting in her fleeing Melbourne for Oxford to start a new life. Candid and moving, this narrative is a vivid evocation of an Australian childhood and a mature realization that one cannot fully escape one's roots.

Review:

"A gem of a memoir. Its intelligence and candor shed brilliant light on a country and a climate of opinion."  —Don Watson, author, American Journeys

"Memoirs have long been the vehicle of choice for reputation demolition, but rarely has the wrecking ball swung with such a blend of honesty and adoration than in Fitzpatrick's work."  —Sydney Morning Herald



"An interesting retrospective on the events, relationships and emotions of childhood and simply an engaging story."  —Australian Bookseller & Publisher

"This thoughtful and thought provoking memoir about the author's fraught relationship with her radical father is a whispered contemplation of an unusual childhood."  —Courier Mail



"One of the most unsparing, intelligent and engaging autobiographical voices I have encountered . . . A pleasure to read."  —Bendigo Advertiser
