    A&R Classics: A Mother's Disgrace

    By: Robert Dessaix

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    The frank and intimate journey of self-discovery by author, critic and arts commentator Robert Dessaix.

    Confronting, revealing and candid, 'A Mother's Disgrace' traces Robert Dessaix's extraordinary life - from his adoption towards the end of World War II, to a most unusual childhood on Sydney's North Shore, to his fascination with Russia and his time spent studying in Cold War Moscow, and to his years spent criss-crossing the globe from Kashmir to Peru on various study trips.

    But a life that might have seemed exciting to others, to Robert was empty at its core. Constantly haunting him was the realisation that there was a 'shaft of silence' running through his being - the question of who his natural mother was and what his origins were. This compelling 'tale without an ending' is a story of coming to terms with a history previously unknown, and with it the acceptance of a new identity.
