THE PATCHWORK HERO

A patchwork of remembered episodes and anecdotes told by Hardy Jamieson of his childhood in an Australian port town. There's his raffish, handsome, philandering father, his two maiden Aunts, and the warmhearted housekeeper whom Hardy's father marries. Told with warmth, humor and sharp detail, this account of an Australian childhood in the 1930's is touching and effective, the characters attractive if not ultimately memorable.
