Summary Stories of the childhood of a boy who grew up in a Housing Commission estate in Melbourne in the 1950s. Running through these tales are longer histories of an Irish Presbyterian family leaving the land, and culture of a French Catholic middle-class family descending into urban poverty, histories fused in the children of a 'mixed' marriage.
