And what a story. A kid from a working-class family who left school at fourteen, married at twenty, had five children by the time she was twenty eight, discovered feminism, pursued her independence, earned a university degree, became a Canberra political insider, ran one of Australia’s most successful PR companies, mixed it with princes, pop stars and presidents and then metaphorically, hit the wall.
There was no warning. Had I not bought that glossy fashion magazine and flipped to the back pages where the social butterflies strutted their stuff, I might not have slipped into madness. But I had a date with Fate. My life was about to change dramatically.
The final chapters tell of the author’s journey through madness, an insider’s account of the bipolar condition, a frightening window onto a total psychotic meltdown and a hard-won recovery.
No one will put down this book unsatisfied. It’s a story packing a mighty punch, often funny, often enlightening but always entertaining.
