Continuing the history of the Irish Darcys begun in Missus and continued in The Harp in the South, this third novel of the trilogy re-acquaints listeners with the vicissitudes of slum life in a Sydney suburb. An unforgettable family and a cast of unforgettable characters enliven a story that is sometimes tragic, but often humourous, in a time of poverty and destitution, hope and promise.

Listener Opinions

    " Beautiful writing but just so awfully grim and hopeless. Harp in the South had some hope and happiness, but Poor Man's Orange was much, much darker. These three novels are such a wonderful documentation of a facet of Australian life that is often ignored and swept under the carpet. "

    " A great continuation of the story - a soapie really with some good social commentary. "

    " Somewhat melodramatic ... But historically accurate and very moving. I love the Darcy family. Reading this series as a young woman helped me to understand my parents and my grand parents generation. "
