Boy, Lost by Kristina Olsson
Texta is no ordinary book club; it's for people who love art. We use fiction to unpack the subjects, themes and emotions of art. Conversation is never colourless, and is facilitated by our brains trust from QUT Creative Writing and Literary Studies. Our fourth and last book for the year is Boy, lost: a family memoir
by Kristina Olsson.
Kristina Olsson's mother lost her infant son, Peter, when he was snatched from her arms as she boarded a train in the hot summer of 1950. She was young and frightened, trying to escape a brutal marriage, but despite the violence and cruelty she'd endured, she was not prepared for this final blow, this breathtaking punishment. Yvonne would not see her son again for nearly 40 years.
Held in conjunction with the exhibition Judith Wright: Desire
, join us for a brief tour of the exhibition followed by a glass of wine and generous amounts of healthy conversation.
