Heartbreaking, joyous, traumatic, intimate and revelatory, Reckoning is the book where Magda Szubanski, one of Australia’s most beloved performers, tells her story.
In this extraordinary memoir, Magda Szubanski describes her journey of self-discovery from a suburban childhood, haunted by the demons of her father’s espionage activities in wartime Poland and by her secret awareness of her sexuality, to the complex dramas of adulthood and her need to find out the truth about herself and her family. With courage and compassion she addresses her own frailties and fears, and asks the big questions about life, about the shadows we inherit and the gifts we pass on.
Honest, poignant, utterly captivating, Reckoning announces the arrival of a fearless writer and natural storyteller. It will touch the lives of its listeners.
What a hoot :)
I love this audio book, interesting funny serious sad, I loved listening to Magda talk about her life and family I found it very interesting and easy to listen to.
Magda’s impersonations and impressions gave it that extra bit. Well worth a listen or read.
Amazing heart gripping read
Wow what a story had a grown man in tears more than once just listening to the heartfelt story. Highly recommend
This was the best I’ve heard/read. Magda reads it’s like she’s telling your personally and you get drawn right into her life.
