Meet Bathurst teacher Jude Murphy as she discusses her debut book, and memoir Scrapbooks and Broken Strings.
Scrapbooks and Broken Strings recounts Jude’s formative years set firmly in the Australian 80s. After a shocking tragedy pierces her childhood, Jude struggles to manage her grief, endure the challenges of young adulthood, navigate a series of tumultuous relationships and traverse the terrain of motherhood and post-natal depression. In this courageously candid and often darkly humorous memoir, Jude shares her battle with drugs, alcohol, illness and madness.
Scrapbooks and Broken Strings is Jude’s first book.
