review The Italian Girl

The Italian Girl

Iscovers that there was much unknown about the kind hearted uiet individual she thought she knew With evocative stories and tender honesty Huntley explores the young life of the woman who cooked masterfully and embroidered. For someone who doesn t read much memoir I seem to have read uite a few of them lately Rebecca Huntley s The Italian Girl interested me because it s billed as the story of an Italian woman who ran the family sugar cane farm while her husband was interned as an enemy alien during WW2 As you can see from comments on my recent post about The Complete Book of Heroic Australian Women I m interested in reading about the role of women in our history and I liked the sound of this one because it offered an insight into our multicultural Australian life Unfortunately this book takes a long time to get beyond the sad but commonplace experience of losing a beloved grandmother and feeling regret about having wasted opportunities to get to know her better There s a lot about the train trip up to Innisfail about the funeral about the burial and so on There are inconclusive efforts to connect with Nonna through belated efforts to learn Italian properly to resurrect a recipe for one of her cakes and an inconclusive trip to Elba which doesn t satisfy the author s uest to find out about her grandmother If you like memoir and the journey of self discovery you ll probably enjoy it but I was interested in the historical aspects of the grandmother s life not the grand daughter s sudden interest in her own identity and her relationship with her mother For than the first third of the book we learn about the personality tastes and personal life of the narrator than we do about the person I expected to be the subject of the memoir From Part 3 onwards the story becomes interesting The history of WW2 internments in Australia isn t widely known much beyond the failed Japanese POW escape attempt in The Cowra Breakout and the shameful story of the Dunera Boys Jewish refugees wrongly sent here from Britain as enemy aliens along with a few Italian fascists and some Nazis In fact there was widespread internment of local Italians during WW2 and it occurred for much the same reasons as the internment of Japanese in America memorably depicted in David Guterson s novel Snow Falling on CedarsTo read the rest of my review please visit Расул Гамзатов Стихи of the woman who cooked masterfully and embroidered.
