Description

This is the first book to examine how Australian fiction writers draw on family histories to reckon with the nation's colonial past.

Located at the intersection of literature, history, and sociology, it explores the relationships between family storytelling, memory, and postcolonial identity.

With attention to the political potential of family histories, Reckoning with the Past argues that authors' often autobiographical works enable us to uncover, confront, and revise national mythologies.

An important contribution to the emerging global conversation about multidirectional memory and the need to attend to the effects of colonisation, this book will appeal to an interdisciplinary field of scholarly readers.
