The Red Shoe
From one of Australia’s finest writers for young people comes this evocative novel juxtaposing the inner life of three girls, the undercurrents of their parents’ marriage and the political dramas of the adult world.
Funny, tough-minded and tender, this is the story of Matilda and her two sisters growing up in Sydney in the 1950s at the time of the Petrov Affair. Punctuated by the headlines of the time, it shows with unsettling clarity how the large events of the world can impinge on ordinary lives.
