Product Description

Heartbreaking, joyous, traumatic, intimate and revelatory, Reckoning is the book where Magda Szubanski, one of Australia's most beloved performers, tells her story.

In this extraordinary memoir, Magda Szubanski describes her journey of self-discovery from a suburban childhood, haunted by the demons of her father's espionage activities in wartime Poland and by her secret awareness of her sexuality, to the complex dramas of adulthood and her need to find out the truth about herself and her family. With courage and compassion she addresses her own frailties and fears, and asks the big questions about life, about the shadows we inherit and the gifts we pass on.

Honest, poignant, utterly captivating, Reckoning announces the arrival of a fearless writer and natural storyteller. It will touch the lives of its listeners.

    Comments about Reckoning:

    Magda Szubanski Memoir was like reading my own story - I also have Polish ancestry. This is a book about love and forgiveness that every Australian should read. A book about growing up 'in between' two cultures and identities. It's a very courageous account of a person who has gained strength to fight for her rights and beliefs. Very good read Magda!

          I felt that magda could have expanded on the Jenny Craig experience. Why she went a huge success initially then put the weight back on ?
