Description - Life In Ten Houses: Penguin Special by Sonya Hartnett

The internationally celebrated writerSonya Hartnett is firmly Melburnian but has restlessly moved from suburb to suburb in her search for the 'Last House' - that special corner of the world in which to settle and find contentment. Viewing her life and work through the lens of real estate, she vividly recalls the places she has passed through on her way to finding home.

Expanding on her 2010 Redmond Barry lecture, this short memoir is a beautifully atmospheric exploration of the idea of home and what it means to be a writer in a City of Literature.
