About the Book

Brothers? Uncles! Sister? Aunt! follows Susie from age nine in the 1930's through to her marriage in the 1940's. Susie discovers that her brothers are really uncles, her sister really an aunt and her Mum is not her mother at all. The reader meets her large family with their diverse personalities and often confusing ways of relating to Susie. It is the first book in a trilogy which traces a woman’s identity and sexuality from childhood shame, through teenage guilt to thirty years of faithful marriage and on to a final awakening after leaving the marriage to live an independent life inspired by her meeting with Bhagwan Sri Rajneesh.

About the Author

Tamaso’s writing first appeared at the age of nine in the children’s section of the Sydney Sunday Sun newspaper. Among her published works are nine teenage novelettes for ‘reluctant readers’ on themes relevant to teenagers of the 1960s and 1970s, books on Australian birds, encyclopedia nature articles, short stories and poems in anthologies from UK, USA, India and Australia, and a short novel Skye’s the Limit, telling of a young girl’s fight to save a rainforest. Her writing embraces mid-twentieth century social themes from middle-class respectability through hard-drinking club and working men’s life, juxtaposed against solitary independence among nature and spiritual awakening. For the last thirty years of her life till her death aged 92 in 2020 she lived and wrote in the Rainbow Region, an area in the lush subtropics of northern NSW, Australia.
