Publisher's Summary

Heartbreaking, joyous, traumatic, intimate and revelatory, Reckoning is the book where Magda Szubanski, one of Australia’s most beloved performers, tells her story.

In this extraordinary memoir, Magda Szubanski describes her journey of self-discovery from a suburban childhood, haunted by the demons of her father’s espionage activities in wartime Poland and by her secret awareness of her sexuality, to the complex dramas of adulthood and her need to find out the truth about herself and her family.

With courage and compassion she addresses her own frailties and fears and asks the big questions about life, about the shadows we inherit and the gifts we pass on.

Honest, poignant, utterly captivating, Reckoning announces the arrival of a fearless writer and natural storyteller. It will touch the lives of its listeners.

    "unexpectedly interesting"

    So worth reading or listening to.
    A story of of her family and others in which she pays homage to the past and the Polish resistance. But so much more than this as well. Magda is so open and honest about her life. Her role as a public figure scarcely figures in this recounting of her life except as incidental. Historical events involving her family cannot but place things coming afterwards into perspective.
    As one who has always had an interest in biographies i can say that this is up there with the best.
