Octavo Size [approx 15.5 x 22.8cm]. Very Good in Very Good Dustjacket. DJ protected in purpose-made plastic sleeve. Maps to endpapers. Signed by the author on title page. Neat previous owner's details to front free end paper. [x] 348 pages An engrossing and highly original exploration of one of the most neglected subjects in Australian social history - the middle class. Not so much a history as a meditation upon life & this country as it is remembered by particular people from a particular place. It begins with a tram journey in 1934 collecting boys and girls from Melbourne's middle class heartland on their first day of school for 1934. It is also a the beginning of an extraordinary journey through Australian private life that starts with the gold rush of the 1850s and concludes in our own time.
