Magda Szubanski has revealed herself to be a fearless writer and natural storyteller with her extraordinary memoir, Reckoning, and she will be joining Simon Abrahams at the Geelong Library and Heritage Centre to discuss her debut and tell her story.
In Reckoning, 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. With courage and compassion she addresses her own frailties and fears, and asks the big questions about life, about the shadows we inherit and the gifts we pass on.
Honest, poignant, utterly captivating, Reckoning announces the arrival of a fearless writer and natural storyteller. It will touch the lives of its readers.
