Synopsis

Amelia Batistich is well known for first chronicling the experience of non-British immigrants in New Zealand in novels and stories written from the late 1940s to the 1990s. Here she recalls her own long life and intersperses her memories with her own stories. Fact and fiction interweave in this book: members of Amelia's family jostle with characters of her imagination, a Countess and a Partisan keep company with the girls from the Berlei factory and the customers in a Sandringham dairy. The warm personality and delighted curiosity of the author glow on every page.
