Magda Szubanski will be in conversation with William Yeoman, Literary Editor of the West Australian, when she visits Parmelia Hilton Perth. Following this sundowner event, there will be time for a Q & A with the audience, along with book sales and signing.
Magda is one of Australia’s best known and most loved performers. She began her career in university revues, then appeared in a number of sketch comedy shows before creating the iconic character of Sharon Strzelecki in ABC-TV’s Kath and Kim. She has also acted in films (Babe, Babe: Pig in the City, Happy Feet, The Golden Compass) and stage shows. Reckoning is her first book.
Honest, poignant, utterly captivating, Reckoning announces the arrival of a fearless writer and natural storyteller. In this extraordinary memoir, Magda describes her journey of self-discovery from a suburban childhood, haunted by the demons of her father’s espionage activities in wartime Poland and by her secret awareness of her sexuality, to the complex dramas of adulthood and her need to find out the truth about herself and her family.
