Told in the form of a diary, this is the story of Harriet’s bid for freedom in the Sydney of the 1960’s. She wants to have her own space, live life, learn about men and love – not get married just because everyone expects her to! And who is Mrs Delvecchio Schwarz, who runs the King’s Cross boarding house? What is her connection with Harriet? And how does Mrs Delveccvhio Schwarz’s silent little girl Flo – ‘Angel Puss’ – accurately predict the future through crayon drawings?
