From: a/b: Auto/Biography Studies
Volume 28, Number 1, Summer 2013
pp. 150-166 | 10.1353/abs.2013.0000



In 1994, Jackie Huggins and her mother Rita published a ground-breaking collaborative memoir, Auntie Rita. Through Jackie’s positioning in the text as commentator, interlocutor, and daughter, Auntie Rita becomes a complex inter-generational narrative that charts not only the individual life stories of Rita and Jackie but also a larger story of Aboriginal history in twentieth-century Australia.
