AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Susan Swingler's father was Leonard Jolley, the man who was married to revered Australian writer Elizabeth Jolley.

'It took Susan decades to unravel the lies Leonard told the family he'd left behind in England when he moved to Australia to make a new life with Elizabeth and their children.

'The deceptions were sustained by Elizabeth Jolley too, deceptions that left Susan hurt, bewildered and incredulous when she eventually discovered them.

'Her memoir of this strange but true family story is called House of Fiction, published by Fremantle Press.'
