Way My Father Tells it: the Story of an Australian Life by Tim Bowden
Book Description"John Bowden has much in common with Bert Facey, author of A FORTUNATE LIFE. Bowden deserves to be placed in that company." - THE CANBERRA TIMES tHE WAY MY FAtHER tELLS It is a story of the joys and sorrows of childhood and adolescence, of falling in love, going to war and returning to re-establish a family life. It is filled with wry charm and self-effacing humour and is a wonderful evocation of an Australia now changed beyond recognition. "It isn't easy to reminisce, alone, into a tape recorder. Yet that is what I asked my father, John Bowden, to do when, in the late 1980s I suggested he should not only record our family history, but reflect on a life that embraced almost the entire twentieth century. then in 1998, at the age of 91, father 'woke up dead' in his own bed, in his own house (which he never wanted to leave), not long after adding a postscript - a final chapter to his life story published in 1989 and titled tHE WAY MY FAtHER tELLS It".
