The Harp In The South
The Harp In The South: Popular Penguins | Ruth Park
3 posts | 7 read | 2 to read
Ruth Park's classic novel The Harp in the South is one of Australia's greatest novels. Hugh and Margaret Darcy are raising their family in Sydney amid the brothels, grog shops and run-down boarding houses of Surry Hills, where money is scarce and life is not easy. Filled with beautifully drawn characters that will make you laugh as much as cry, this Australian classic will take you straight back to the colourful slums of Sydney with convincing depth, careful detail and great heart.

Number two in the trilogy. I first read this as a high school text. I‘ve been a groupie of the trilogy ever since. I can feel myself in Sydney, in those times. This book made me approach dialogue differently. This book has everything; highs, lows, dangers, love and humour. This is a soul-read for me ❤️

Am planning to work my way through a bunch of Australian classics, starting with this. It has definitely grabbed me already. #aussieclassics
