Angela’s Kitchen

1 Male, 1 Female

Paul Capsis & Julian Meyrick Price: $24.95

In 1948, Angela left Malta

Having gathered up five children, she sailed out on the Strathnavar, leaving poverty and the war behind

Her destination: Australia

In Surry Hills, she could build a bright new life

If only she could first learn the language, finish shoring up their dilapidated house, find new friends, get the racist neighbour off her back and keep her son away from sly grog queen Kate Leigh’s kids

Back in Malta, someone else has made a journey

Making his way along Kalkara’s glistening harbourside, a young man with flowing black hair has returned to claim his past

Paul Capsis is walking home

A journey that begins at a kitchen table becomes a sprawling family history and a fitting tribute to a much-loved matriarch
