How do you make sense of the loss of those you love most? Delia Rabbit has asked herself this question over and over again since the disappearance of her older sister, Bo. Crippled by grief, Delia and her mother became dysfunctional, parting ways not long after Delia turned eighteen. Now an art teacher at a Queensland college, Delia has managed to build a new life for herself and to create a family of her own. Only more and more that life is slipping: her partner, Ed, has gone, her daughter, Olive, is distancing herself, and, all of a sudden, in the middle of a blinding heatwave, her sixteen-year-old son, Charlie, disappears too. Suddenly what was buried feels close to the surface, and the Rabbits are faced not only with each other, but also with themselves. The Rabbits is a multigenerational family story with a dose of magical realism. It is about family secrets, art, very mild superpowers, loneliness and the strange connections we make in the places we least expect. From the winner of the Penguin Literary Prize.

It is September, the wattle is flowering, and it smells like napalm.' In this stunning memoir, full of black humour and razor-sharp observations, visual artist Judy Cotton captures the intricacies of family relationships and the push-pull of home. Her mother, Eve, was a brilliant but exacting woman, a gifted pianist whose perfectionism cut her career short. After marrying, she established a successful stud farm for sheep in the Blue Mountains while supporting her husband's political career. Judy's charismatic father, Bob, was a federal minister and ambassador to the United States, with traditional ideas about who Judy should become. Sent to boarding school from the age of four, Judy yearned for her parents but found them increasingly controlling. Her desire for freedom eventually took her overseas, to Korea and Japan in the late 1960s, and later to New York, where she finally discovered belonging in the art scene. But the undertow of home was impossible to escape. In dazzling prose and with an artist's eye for landscape, Swimming Home is a powerful meditation on loss and longing, freedom and connection.

In this stunning memoir, full of black humour and razor-sharp observations, visual artist Judy Cotton captures the intricacies of family relationships and the push-pull of home. Her mother, Eve, was a brilliant but exacting woman, a gifted pianist whose perfectionism cut her career short. After marrying, she established a successful stud farm for sheep in the Blue Mountains while supporting her husband's political career. Judy's charismatic father, Bob, was a federal minister and ambassador to the United States, with traditional ideas about who Judy should become. Sent to boarding school from the age of four, Judy yearned for her parents but found them increasingly controlling. Her desire for freedom eventually took her overseas, to Korea and Japan in the late 1960s, and later to New York, where she finally discovered belonging in the art scene. But the undertow of home was impossible to escape. In dazzling prose and with an artist's eye for landscape, Swimming Home is a powerful meditation on loss and longing, freedom and connection.<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">Author: </span>Cotton, Judy<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">Published: </span>Melbourne, VIC : Black Inc, 2022.<br />240 pages : 6 leaves of plates ; 21 cm.<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">3 reserves</span><br /><br />Sandringham Library - (Bayside Library Service) - DIY Book Club - 709.2 COT - Onloan - Due: 03 Jan 2023 - 010750772<br /> The Things She Owned [Book Club Set] / Katherine Tamiko Arguile. https://bayside.spydus.com/cgi-bin/spydus.exe/ENQ/WPAC/BIBENQ?SETLVL=&BRN=382431&CF=BIB #aYears after the death of her cruel and complicated mother, Erika's house is still full of the things Michiko left behind: an onigiri basket, a Wedgewood tea set, a knotted ring from Okinawa. In defiance of Japanese tradition, Erika has also kept the urn containing Michiko's ashes, refusing to put her memory to rest. Erika throws herself into working as a chef at a high-end London restaurant and pretends everything is fine. But when a cousin announces that she will be visiting from Japan, Erika's resolve begins to crack. Slowly the things Michiko owned reveal stories of Michiko's youth amid the upheaval of Tokyo during and after the war. As the two women's stories progress and entwine, Erika is drawn to the island of Okinawa, the homeland of her grandmother. It's a place of magic and mysticism where the secrets of Erika's own past are waiting to be revealed. #aYears after the death of her cruel and complicated mother, Erika's house is still full of the things Michiko left behind: an onigiri basket, a Wedgewood tea set, a knotted ring from Okinawa.

But after growing up together in a small, southern black community and running away at age sixteen, it's not just the shape of their daily lives that is different as adults, it's everything: their families, their communities, their racial identities. Ten years later, one sister lives with her black daughter in the same southern town she once tried to escape. The other secretly passes for white, and her white husband knows nothing of her past. Still, even separated by so many miles and just as many lies, the fates of the twins remain intertwined. What will happen to the next generation, when their own daughters' story lines intersect?
