9780571242719: June in Her Spring

Australia, 1950. The rarely-spotted duck-billed platypus is rumoured to bring you luck. Sixteen-year-old June Westley is an ideal daughter - kind, considerate, loving, and far more at ease in the Bush pioneered by her forefathers than her own father, Arthur, who spends his days waxing the Buick in the Australian sun. One day she spots a platypus and, sure enough, luck seems to shine down on her when she falls in love with a young musician. At first their affair is enchanting and passionate; but soon they are forced to confront family hostility and jealousies, and the heritage of madness and homosexuality that threaten to destroy their relationship. A sympathetic picture of outsiders in a cloistered world, June in Her Spring is an idyllic and sensuous tale of the confusion, horror and tentative delights of first love.

About the Author:

COLIN MACINNES (1914-76), son of novelist Angela Thirkell, cousin of Stanley Baldwin and Rudyard Kipling, grandson of Burne-Jones, was brought up in Australia but lived most of his life in London about which he wrote with a warts-and-all relish that earned him a reputation as the literary Hogarth of his day. Bisexual, outsider, champion of youth, pale-pink friend of Black Londoners and chronicler of English life, MacInnes described himself as a very nosy person who found adultery in Hampstead indescribably dull and was much more at home in the coffee bars and jazz clubs of Soho and Notting Hill. A talented off-beat journalist and social observer, he is best known for his three London novels, "City of Spades, Absolute Beginners" and "Mr Love and Justice". MacInnes died of cancer in 1976.
