Solid Bluestone Foundations: And Other Memories of a Melbourne Girlhood 1908-1928
Kathleen Fitzpatrick
Melbourne & Campbelltown; Melbourne University Press; 1998
0522848230 9780522848236
Book Condition: Very Good. Paperback. Size E: 8"-9" Tall (203-228mm). The cover has minor wear. 232 pages. Kathleen Fitzpatrick's 'magnificent book of memories', as Manning Clark described it, is a classic work among Australian memoirs. 'Hughenden', the seaside mansion of her grandparents, provided the 'solid bluestone foundations' of Kathleen's somewhat unsettled childhood. The puzzled observations and alert curiosity of a highly intelligent child are vividly recreated in these beautifully written recollections. They paint an evocative picture of middle-class life in Melbourne in the early years of the twentieth century. Major themes include the awakening of Kathleen's feminist consciousness, her discovery at the University of Melbourne of her true vocation as a historian, and her unhappy experiences as a 'colonial' at Oxford University.
