Quick Overview

Published 1953.  By Ruth Park.  217 pages.

Hard cover book in fair condition.  Dust jacket has some edge tears and pages browning but in tact.  

Ruth Park's new novel is vividly, authentically set in Sydney and her affectionate understanding of the city is no less apparent than her affectionate understanding of her characters.  Miriam McKillop, and her grand-uncle, Perce McKillop, or Uncle Puss as she calls him, live at Dawes Point under the shadow of the great Sydney Harbour Bridge which not only dominates the buildings below, but has its part also in the lives of the pople that inhabit them.

Miriam, the fiery-tempered, loving, protective urchin who is far more versed in the ways of her world than her years would indicate, is perhaps the most delightful of all Ruth Park's character creations.  But, as in Miss Park's earlier books, it is the minor characters who show most clearly her imagination, wit, and sympathy.
