Romulus, My Father by Raimond Gaita

Book Description

Romulus Gaita fled his home in his native Yugoslavia at the age of thirteen, and came to Australia with his young wife, Christina, and their infant son Raimond, soon after the end of World War II. Tragic events were to overtake the boy's life, but Raimond Gaita has an extraordinary story to tell about growing up with his father amid the stony paddocks and flowing grasses of country Australia. Written simply and movingly, Romulus, My Father is about how a compassionate and honest man taught his son the meaning of living a decent life. It is about passion, betrayal and madness, about friendship and the joy and dignity of work, about character and fate, affliction and spirituality.
