My Mother and the Hungarians : And Other Small Fictions (Paperback) (Frankie Mcmillan)
about this item
In this new collection of flash fiction from Frankie McMillan, family relationships and the experiences of refugees in 1950s New Zealand are explored through exaggeration, humour, and surreal eddies of simile and metaphor that broaden the pieces out to look askance at politics, culture and history. These compressed, often comic, capsules of narrative convey a rich sense of family connection, of the lives of Hungarian immigrants to New Zealand and also of a child’s evolving self-awareness in a fractured, yet still enchanting, world.
