Children of the Revolution


Peter Duncan

Published by Currency Press

In 1952 Joan Fraser's passionate political correspondence leads to an invitation to meet Josef Stalin. In the Kremlin the unrivalled desideratum of Sydney's inner west is bedded by the political giant who moments later drops dead

When young Joe is born in Balmain, nine months later, there is some uncertainty about his father but for Joan at least there is one certainty - her son is destined for greatness

However, in the years that follow, as Communism's star sets, her plans seemed doomed to failure until prison, love and family contrive to retrieve young Joe's destiny from oblivion. Children of the Revolution was nominated for nine AFI awards, including Best Film, Best Director and Best Actress (Judy Davis)
