I met Mandy Macky at Book Expo last May at an author breakfast. She’s the franchise owner of Dymocks Bookstore in Adelaide, Australia and she was here with her buying manager Sophie Groom. Over rolls and coffee we talked about the book business in Australia and I told them about my forthcoming book about memoirs and how it included one of my all-time favorite memoirs, A Fortunate Life by A.B. Facey, an Australian classic. Mandy asked me to let her know when my book was published. Much to my delight she ordered it and sent me the picture at left. Mandy writes: My “staff really like the book and I know that it will be an invaluable resource for us all.” Thanks so much, Mandy!
Here’s a list of Australian memoirs–classic and recent.
