My Marian Year
Paperback | English
My Marian Year is a delightful reminiscence of a year in the life of a ten year old Catholic boy, growing up in Auckland in 1954. All who lived through these times will love this book, with its rich observation of every crevice of a child’s upbringing then. The joys, hardships and complexities of home, school, church, shops, workplaces, transport and entertainment are rendered in vivid detail. Everything is described with care from the washing, cooking, cleaning, dining, recycling, gardening, preserving, playing and relaxing, to school, family, community and religious observances that characterized the passing year.
