With his classic Immigrant Chronicle, Peter Skrzynecki harnessed the universal language of poetry. Now, in his powerful memoir The Sparrow Garden, he travels from the Displaced Persons camps of Germany to the suburban battlegrounds of outer Sydney and taunts of "reffo" and "dago". In unforgettable style, he leads us on a bracing rollercoaster of emotions and boyhood adventures. The Sparrow Garden is also the deeply personal story of one man's complex, loving relationship with his parents.
