Fury: A Memoir, Paperback / softback Book

Fury: A Memoir Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

At the age of twenty, after a traumatic sexual assault trial, Kathryn Heyman ran away from her life and became a deckhand on a fishing trawler in the Timor Sea. Coming from a family of poverty and violence, she had no real role models, no example of how to create or live a decent life, how to have hope or expectations.

But she was a reader. She understood story, and the power of words to name the world.

This was to become her salvation. After one wild season on board the Ocean Thief, the only girl among tough working men, facing storms, treachery and harder physical labour than she had ever known, Heyman was transformed.

Finally, she could name the abuses she thought had broken her, could see 'all that she had been blind to, simply to survive'.

More than that, after a period of enforced separation from the world, she was able to return to it newly formed, determined to remake the role she'd been born into. A reflection on the wider stories of class, and of growing up female with all its risks and rewards, Fury is a memoir of courage and determination, of fighting back and demanding to be seen.
