Winner, 2008 IP Picks Best Creative Non-fiction Award. A nostalgic insight into what it was like to grow up in Australia in the 1930s and 40s, mixed with undertones of delightful humour and fading innocence. Historical events, such as the lead up to World War II, are artfully compared to the tensions in the speaker's own family life. Jones invites us to reflect on how far we've come, and the precious things that may have been lost on the way.
