In Conversation with Corrie Perkin
The book documents every decade of Marigold, Lady Southey's life from her birth in California, her childhood in the family home, Cranlana, in Melbourne, the tragic death of her father, Sidney Myer, travels with her mother, (Dame) Merlyn, in America and Europe and then her courtship and marriage to Ross Shelmerdine.
"Revolutions never start at the top. If we dare to dream of a more loving country—kinder, more compassionate, more cooperative, more respectful, more inclusive, more egalitarian, more harmonious, less cynical—there’s only one way to start turning that dream into a reality: each of us must live as if this is already that country."
Generous, erudite, optimistic and candid ... Hugh Mackay knows how to bring out the best in ourselves and in our society, in both good and troubled times.
