AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A paradoxical 'love-hate' relationship has often been inherent in many Queensland writers' reminiscences. For just as schooling and childhood have been notoriously vexed subjects in Queensland's history, they have also provided rich inspiration for writers who have used their negative and positive features as 'source material'. It is even possible that these negative features have fuelled writers' growths!' (Author's introduction p 87)
