Dinkum yet Dutch

“Every page filled with energy and wit as John shares his amazing romp through two very different childhood worlds.”

“A delightful insight on living in Sydney’s Northern Beaches area during the fifties, with beautifully managed themes throughout. I loved the characters, all really well drawn.”

“You’ll sigh and shed a tear or two, but mostly you’ll laugh out loud as Lindeman brings the fifties vividly back to life.”

“The best and worst of post-war Australia are laid bare in this enjoyable yet touching story of the struggles of a Dutch family finding their place in a strange new country.”
