Nadia Wheatley tells us this meant that she wanted nothing to do with the memory of her mother but although the enigma of her mother's anti-Communism which seems to co-exist with the fact that she was originally a bit of a lefty herself runs like a leitmotif it's never quite elucidated.

And there's a fair bit in Her Mother's Daughter that seems to hover in the shadows of the valley: parts of it are, as it were, fictionalised, and it certainly has a winding stair, detective story-like structure, but the baldness of the factual detail, parts of which wring the heart, are not fully imagined — it's as if they can't be and this gives the book its peculiar awkwardness in the midst of a heartbreak that remains somehow implicit. We learn at the end of Wheatley's melancholy when the year moves, memorially, towards dark remembrancing.
We learn of how she could wake screaming. We learn of how she was touched up by some rich chap who ended up being knighted we have been waiting for something like this but when it comes it doesn't have symbolic weight. None of which is to deny that this is a tough-minded attempt to salvage and preserve as precious tokens both the hopes and charms of a long dead mother and the things she and her exceptionally talented daughter suffered at the hands of a callous world. Would it have been better to have more art, more artfulness, more power of design as in Nicholas Shakespeare's little book about his aunt, Priscilla , or Andrew Motion's memoir about his mother, In the Blood?
Yes, I think so.

But who are we to say in the face of this massive act of excavation and self-exposure? Who could fail to believe in the fineness of her mother, Neen, and how meanly '50s Australia — with the help of a creepy sounding husband — stacked the cards against her? Related Titles. Copyright Information.
