Julie Marcus The Flavour of her Years. Culinary Memories of Mother and Domestic Life in the 1950’s.
In a vivid intimate memoir of her mother and family life in the 1950s, Julie Marcus describes a way of living that now seems remote. Like so many others of her generation, Anne Marcus was a free spirit restrained by the languid English conservatism of Adelaide, a small city clinging to the southern coast of Australia. Julie Marcus brings a sharp yet tender eye to a mother’s life of care, responsibility, cookery and joie de vivre. More than a story of one family this is a proud and uplifting testament to that generation of Australian women who raised and protected their families in a new world built on the rubble of two terrible wars. Illustrated with over 100 photographs sourced from family and friends.
