Ursula Dubosarsky, "The Red Shoe"
Publisher: Allen & Unwin Academic | 2006-01 | ISBN 1741142857 | PDF | 183 pages | 1.1 MB
Funny, tough-minded and tender, this is the story of Matilda and her two sisters growing up in Sydney, Australia, in the early 1950s. Their father is mentally unstable and largely absent, their mother is possibly in the thrall of his brother, and a headline-making Russian spy defection is taking place next door. Punctuated by the headlines of the times, The Red Shoe depicts how the large events of the world can impinge on ordinary lives. This is a novel to savor by one of Australia's most gifted writers for young people.
