“’A Curious and Inelegant Childhood’ by Linda Brooks is an autobiography detailing her family, friends and schooling throughout her childhood. She describes life in a small Australian town and the adventures and misadventures of her childhood. She clearly remembers young years of her life. She tells of neighbourhood “wars” and her perception of her mother, father and brother in different times of her life. Adoration for her father melts off the pages . . . a delightful story that will entertain any reader.”

'If we gather the threads from the snapshots of our childhood, we find the person we have become. We find ourselves.’
