Summary
I realise that, despite all the references to my longing to be a writer, two things are apparent. The first is that I don't actually do much writing; the second is that my teenage reflections display absolutely no talent for it.My Diary is prima facie evidence of self-delusion on a grand scale.A memoir in parts, from one of Australia's best-loved playwrights.Hannie Rayson--writer, mother, daughter, sister, wife, romantic, adventuress, parking-spot optimist--has spent a lifetime giving voice to others in the many roles she has written for stage and television.In her new book, she shines the spotlight on herself. This collection of stories from a dramatic life radiate with the great warmth and humour that has made Hannie one of the best-known playwrights in the country. From a childhood in Brighton to a urinary tract infection in Spain, from a body buried under the house to a play on a tram, Hello, Beautiful! captures a life behind the scenes--a life of tender moments, hilarious encounters and, inevitably, drama
