Daisy Chains, War, Then Jazz

This is the autobiography of celebrated Aussie painter Frederick McCubbin's youngest child, published in 1984.

Kathleen Managan has shared here her memories of growing up in the early years of the 20th century, with a lively and often humorous look on life.

Recalling her family, including her famous father, the author shares accounts of the family houses filled to the rafters with the famous and unknown, giving equal time to Dame Nellie Melba's visits as she has done with Miss B.

Another great op shop find, full of tales from an eye witness to the changing years of our country and her famous artist father.
