Things I Didn't Know
A MemoirBook - 2007
Opening with a devastating account of the horrific car accident in Western Australia several years ago that almost took his life and left him physically shattered, Things I didn't know is a magnificent memoir of a life passionately lived and minutely examined. Taking us through his family history, his years at a Catholic boys boarding school and at Sydney University to his new life in Italy and London in the 60s and 70s, Robert Hughes uses his extraordinary life to examine the nature of art, war, sex, writing, religion, and life itself.
