206 pages. 'Class - like a Cadillac' the bloke said, and she was called Caddie ever after. Caddie is the true story of a sensitive, attractive girl left to fend for herself and her two children. Her desperate efforts to survive and earn an existence in the hard times of the 1920s and '30s led her to many jobs and situations. Working as a barmaid in a number of pubs, she sees the Sydney scene on all levels - the seamy underworld, middle class respectability and pseudo-gentility. Caddie is a battler, a girl with honest, plain guts; despite everything, she never goes under. In her affectionate introduction, Dymphna Cusack tells the story of the book and what little is known of the real Caddie. This fresh, warm-hearted but totally sophisticated book stirred the literary critics to superlatives when it ?rst appeared in 1955. This book attracted wide critical acclaim upon its first publication in London, and became a bestseller when it was adapted into a feature film in 1976.
