Colleen Moyne / Called to Coddiwomple

  • Colleen Moyne / Called to Coddiwomple
'With Called to Coddiwomple, Colleen Moyne draws the reader into a fascinating personal journey. This memoir-poetry book is not a tour guide of country South Australia, but a deep insight into the writer as she “comes of age” and begins her nomadic travels in her beloved campervan and, to paraphrase Colleen’s own words, to write from her own heart and soul. Colleen gives unique insights into her memory landscape in the context of her journey to becoming a mature individual. For example, the memoir moment of Colleen as a child in a troubled family environment, followed by the poems “A Life So Small” and “Books”, give specific insights that many a reader will identify with. Another example is the difficult drive with her father and his brother that led to her wondrous discovery of the Flinders Ranges and “the rawness and wild beauty of the mid-north”. Page by page, the reader is escorted through similar moving experiences. Colleen shares personal memories, past and present, as her campervan journey continues with Trevor. Who is Trevor? Go coddiwompling through the pages - and enjoy your adventuring.’ - Martin Christmas
'Reading Called to Coddiwomple is an immersive experience which impacts on perception and empathy. The reader feels embraced by the author's experiences as well as excited by the new life she embarks on.' - Compulsive Reader
