Rosner, Maurie: The Bell Tolls For Thee

Rosner, Maurie: The Bell Tolls For Thee

by Maurie Rosner

Maurie Rosner has created a set of nostalgic stories that bring to life the Australia of the ‘40s and ‘50s. They tell of a young Jewish boy who is eager to become the great Aussie bloke. In one, he reaches dizzy heights when appointed bell-ringer at primary school, but all is not as it seems. And then there are the weekends, ideologically confusing for a little kid – walking an hour and a half each way to the synagogue every Saturday morning with his Uncle Ben and sellingThe Tribune every Sunday morning with his Communist dad. Beaut stories!
