KIRKUS REVIEW

The Australian outlands and Sydney as background for the story of Shannon Hicks, who gets the beginnings of wisdom with her drab family, continues her education at her aunt's boarding house, works in a restaurant, at the Order of Human Brotherhood, in radio and in the labor side of politics. The story makes no concerted effort to arrive anywhere (one glimpses something of autobiography here and there), though there are satiric turns of character and style and a certain dry, small humor. Incidental reading -- but lacks the impact of her first novel, The Battlers.
