Formatted Abstract/Summary
Anna Lubansky shoots to prominence with her first novel 'Mrs Petrov's Shoe', the emotional narrative of a nine-year-old girl's struggle to reconcile her Australian reality with her parents' Central European heritage. Set in the Cold War era of the early 1960s, and promoted as heavily autobiographical, the book garners a harvest of awards, and Anna's multicultural star is shining brightly in the literary firmament -- until the real fiction is uncovered ...

Unfolding in four distinct parts, Mrs Petrov's Shoe jumps between fiction and reality, past and present, telling a tale of self-representation and cultural identity, framed by a literary hoax.
