50 years after its original publication, Aunts Up The Cross remains a perennial classic of Australian childhood. Growing up in the 1930s in a grand old home in Sydney's bohemian Kings Cross, Robin Dalton experienced a childhood of curiosity and wonder. Raised by a bevy of idiosyncratic aunts and a revolving door of unconventional houseguests, Dalton recalls a time when children had real adventures in a world not easy, but perhaps less complicated than today's. Steeped in nostalgia, this is a delightfully funny memoir of family, childhood and the Australia of yesteryear.
