Journal Entry 1 by mattandmandy75 from Cockatoo, Victoria Australia on Wednesday, June 22, 2022
In the 1980s in the Melbourne suburb of Fawkner, Josie's father is drinking himself to an ugly and appalling death. Josie's mother is a factory machinist, bringing home piecework to keep the family afloat. And Josie is surviving, or not-self-destructive sex, excessive alcohol, drugs, brutalised friendships. But her internal monologue-intense, immediate and raw-reveals a heartbreaking portrait of an intelligent young woman desperately looking for a way to make sense of her life, grappling with her feelings of repulsion and love for her father and her longing to be loved. First published in 1998, Losing It is a vivid and visceral account of 1980s working-class Melbourne and a coming-of-age story that is both familiar and unique, shocking and intimate.
