'The Weight of Silence is the gravity of all the unsaids, the unseens, and how they shape our lives. A father s drinking, a mother s shame, a daughter s longing to hold onto a trouser leg to hear someone speak of what never happened.
The Weight of Silence = 9 lbs 4 ozs.
In her achingly funny, heartbreaking childhood memoir, Catherine Therese takes the reader inside her head, and upside down on a unique emotional rollercoaster from picking her belly button in her backyard in Blacktown, pulling her hair out standing on her head, to the stage; hiding inside her wardrobe interpreting silence, to the bedroom of a boy with half a thumb and to the labour ward, in an unforgettable story of remembering, forgetting, pretending, of becoming who you are.'
