My great Aunt Juliet was knocked over and killed by a bus when she was eighty-five. The bus was travelling very slowly in the right direction and could hardly have been missed by anyone except Aunt Juliet, who must have been travelling fairly fast in the wrong direction. Growing up in the 1930s in a grand old home in Sydney’s bohemian Kings Cross, Robin Dalton experienced a childhood of curiosity and wonder. Raised by a bevy of idiosyncratic aunts and a revolving door of unconventional houseguests, Dalton recalls a time when children had real adventures in a world not easy but perhaps less complicated than today’s. With a gentle warmth and wicked wit, Robin Dalton brings to life all the colour, glamour and charm of Australian society between the wars. Steeped in nostalgia, Aunts Up the Cross is a delightfully funny memoir of family, childhood and an Australia of yesteryear. Robin Dalton was born in Sydney, and has lived in London since 1946. She has been a television performer, an intelligence agent, a literary agent and a film producer (Madame Souzatska starring Shirley Maclaine; Oscar and Lucinda starring Cate Blanchett), as well as an author. Her 1965 account of her childhood in Kings Cross, Aunts up the Cross remains an Australian classic. The previously unpublished My Relations will be released in 2015. ‘Hysterically funny.’ Jennifer Byrne ‘A hugely energetic gallop, nicely complemented by Dinah Dryhurst’s spikey, spirited illustrations...[Dalton] lived a technicolour, quite glorious life, which you’ll enjoy being diverted by.’ New Zealand Herald ‘A quirky and hilarious childhood memoir. I haven’t laughed so much in years.’ Tim Flannery, The Books We Loved 2016, Sydney Morning Herald

An aunt is not just another mother—and aunts defy any sort of archetypal image. Like humanity, they span the spectrum, from down-home Auntie Em to the uninhibited Auntie Mame. Some aunts are smart, others are crazy. Some act bravely, others downright foolish. Now in Ingrid Sturgis’s marvelous Aunties, she gives these extraordinary women their due, sharing a wonderful, eclectic collection of thirty personal essays that explore the complex, seldom-profiled bond between aunts and their nieces and nephews. Profiling a variety of aunts from different cultures, temperaments, and walks of life—the surrogate mother, the wild aunt, the eccentric aunt, the mentor—the essays are written by well-known journalists and authors such as Pearl Cleage and M.J. Rose, as well as everyday people . . . all of whom bring their subjects to stirring life in their own unique ways. “Tia Sonia” made her living as an old-world witch in Honduras, providing her niece, Beverly James, with a tenuous connection to the country of her birth—and imparting a valuable lesson after she fails to predict her own tragic demise; the dramatic and glamorous “Tropical Aunts”—also known as Aunt Debs and Aunt Ava—ventured north from Florida only twice, but left an indelible mark on Enid Shomer’s ideas about being an independent woman; in the heartwarming “Bloodsense,” Mark Holt-Shannon’s magical Aunt Lolly, a woman with a heart as big as the ocean, provided unconditional love—and a bridge between three boys and the father who left them all behind. A wonderful celebration of family, Aunties is a labor of the heart and a show of reverence to the women whose intangible gifts of love and respect often pass without recognition. Through the vivid memories of real relationships, these narratives pay tribute to aunts everywhere.

Aunts have not had their due recognition - until now. But here, in the simple tasks and pleasures of her ordinary life, the aunt is portrayed with wonder and affection. Starting with the Ambulant, walking her dogs past G.F.Watts' statue of Physical Energy in Kensington Gardens, this book describes her in twenty-six beautifully observed portraits, one for each letter of the alphabet. Here is the Elegant on the catwalk; the Hydrant, watering her garden; the Indignant, watching those same plants being dug up by the ubiquitous canines who are so much a part of her life; the Mendicant, begging outside Daunt's bookshop; the Osculant, indulging in the pastime that aunts do best; the Ruminant, eating salad in her lonely cafe, not to forget the Truant, shamelessly sporting SEMPER ABSUM on her school blazer. Each picture, meticulously drawn by Mungo McCosh, is followed on its subsequent page by the name of the aunt the picture describes. Beautiful and aptly chosen lettering tells us who she is - in case we can't guess for ourselves. A book of wit and wisdom, for nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, everywhere.

New Ways To Kill Your Mother

From Colm Tóibín comes New Ways to Kill Your Mother, a fabulously entertaining book about writers and their families. In this wonderfully entertaining and enlightening collection, Colm Tóibín not only explores the often tense relationship between writers and their families but also conveys, with a rare tenderness and wit, the great joy of reading their work. Here is W.B. Yeats harshly responding to his own father's literary efforts; Thomas Mann ruining his children's prospects; Tennessee Williams haunted by his sister's mental illness; and John Cheever being beastly to his wife. Praise for New Ways to Kill Your Mother: 'A brilliant book...Tóibín is a supple, subtle thinker, alive to hints and undertones, wary of absolute truths' Robert Hanks, New Statesman 'A penetrating and often very funny inquiry into the fraught complicity between parent and child, brother and sister' Daily Telegraph' Insightful and compassionate, assured and knowledgeable, never less than fascinating. An impressive, fine and engaging collection' Independent on Sunday
