Hippy Days, Arabian Nights: From life in the bush to love on the Nile

by Katherine Boland

“I know it’s only May but this is my book of the year. It’s an absolutely beautiful book.”

Ann Creber, The Good Life, 3MR

“Everyone will love it, relate to it, and want to recommend it to their friends. The book is funny at times, sad, heartbreaking, and full of many adventures.  It exceeded my expectations on what a memoir would entail!”

Jennifer Holmes; The Girly Bookclub

“An enthralling and moving memoir, one that keeps the reader amused, frustrated, indignant at times, but above all, inspired. Katherine is one of those wonderfully rare and brilliant women, who jump in, feet first.”

Stan Gorton; Narooma News

“An honest account that I enjoyed immensely.”

Ian Lipke; Queensland Reviewers Collective

“Katherine Boland’s motto: “Feel the fear and do it anyway,” perfectly describes her absorbing story of courageous lifestyle choices. Told with exquisitely crafted prose and a whimsical sense of humour, the captivating imagery – which takes you from the uniqueness of the Australian bush to the exoticism of faraway Egypt – will have you wishing you lived in Katherine’s shoes! A gripping story of true love with an admirable resolution. This should be read by many!”

Cheryl Koenig OAM; 2009 N.S.W. Woman of the Year; Author & Motivational Speaker

“This sparkling memoir will take you deeply into the lives of back-to-the-earth, self-sustaining hippies of the 70s, 80s and 90s and a passionate relationship between a feminist free-thinker and an Egyptian man twenty-seven years her junior. Artist Katherine Boland lived on the edge of social mores that most of us cling to. She tells her extraordinary story with humour, insight and a painterly eye.

Jill Sanguinetti; educator and author

“A wonderful depiction of living without bounds and loving without fear. Katherine writes like she lives: courageously, passionately and without regret.”

Kimina Lyall; journalist

The Mouth That Roared

by Les Twentyman and Robert Hillman

“Les Twentyman is a legend, a true guardian angel in the wilds of western suburbia where so many are forgotten or maligned. Filled with his characteristic humour, wit and knack for telling a good tale, this is a book that should be read by policymakers, politicians and opinion columnists. They might learn something from the Braybrook boy who didn’t finish high school, but who truly understands the heart and humanity behind our most vulnerable and voiceless.”

Alice Pung; author

“Les is a front-line urban lifesaver, rescuing the drowning from their addictions. If you want to know the truth about Australia, and whats gone wrong, ‘The Mouth that Roared’ is a compelling read.”

Chris Smith; 2 GB

“Les Twentyman is one of Australia’s great storytellers. This book is funny, honest and inspirational; it teaches us about character, leadership and community – the essence of Les’s life.”

Paul Kennedy; ABC journalist

With-Just-One-Suitcase

With Just One Suitcase

by Cheryl Koenig

“Our richness as a migrant nation endures through the stories of our forebears, told and retold to new generations. This is one such story among many that make us who we are today”

Tanya Plibersek, Deputy Leader of the Opposition, Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs & International Development

Crooked-Vows

Crooked Vows

by John Watt

“Offered to us as a tale of turmoil in a Catholic soul, John Watt’s novel is also a deeply-felt study of the human struggle for liberty; of the price we might be willing to pay, and why we should”

Robert Hillman, Award winning author with over 60 published works

The-Tainted-Trail-Of-Jarah-Fama

The Tainted Trial of Farah Jama

by Julie Szego

“A compelling story I couldn’t put down”

Goodreads Book Review by Simone Sinna

blood-on-my-hands

Blood on my Hands: A Surgeon at War
by Craig Jurisevic

“A book that challenged the way I perceived victims of war. A moving story well written”

Goodreads Book Review by Megan Aney

School-Days-Of-A-Methodist-Lady

School Days of a Methodist Lady: A journey through girlhood
by Jill Sanguinetti

“This frank and searching narrative is in fact a compelling social document. The author demonstrates a remarkable ability to recall the details of her life in the middle of the 20th century in Australia, and to construct from her joys and sorrows a memoir that is warm, thoughtful and inspirational.”

Carmel Bird, fiction and non-fiction writer, leading teacher of fiction and memoir-writing.

 

Rugmaker

The Rugmaker of Mazar-e-Sharif
by Najaf Mazari & Robert Hillman

“An antidote to the mindless bigotry I hear regularly in the media and from Australians about this issue. I can only be grateful that someone has had the good sense to make this book required reading for the young people of this country. With any luck this type of literature may slowly bring about a change in the way the general public views the part they can play in the plight of those less fortunate in the world who only ask for a chance in this “lucky country”
