Publisher's Summary

From the bestselling author of The Thorn Birds and The First Man in Rome comes an exhilarating new novel. Colleen McCullough takes us back to 1960 and Sydney's notorious King's Cross, and the story of a young woman determined to defy convention.Twenty-one year-old Harriet, a newly qualified X-ray technician earning a coveted male wage, ignores her father's warning that "only fools, Bohemians and tarts live in Kings Cross" and moves into Mrs. Delvecchio Schwartz's rooming house. There she discovers that Mrs. Delvecchio Schwartz has more sources of income than rents. She casts horoscopes, reads tarot cards, and gazes into her crystal ball...far more profitable! But it is mute four-year-old Flo, her mother's medium and beloved angel puss, who captures Harriet's heart.


What the Critics Say

"Irreverent, moving and irascibly funny." (Sydney Morning Herald)

What was one of the most memorable moments of Angel Puss?

One of the stand out moments was when mild, meek, Harriet walloped a man in the face.

I would listen to Ms Jones again, anytime.

I was devestated when this book came to an end !

Where does Angel Puss rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is THE BEST I have listened to by far !

Who was your favorite character and why?

Absolutely Harriet Percel, such a strong, fiesty, fearless young woman - she stood up for herself ,which was not an easy thing in the 1960's !

Which character – as performed by Kellie Jones – was your favorite?

I cannot choose a favorite. Kellie Jones is THE BEST narrator ever !! She is bloody fantastic ! Such a brilliant Aussie voice, with clear, easy to listen to tone and pronounciation.

Who was the most memorable character of Angel Puss and why?

Mrs Delvikio-Schwartz. A clever, mystical,magical 'don't give a stuff what you think of me' ....yet kind and loving type.

Any additional comments?

BUY THIS BOOK !!! especially if you are like me and find American and Brittish accents hard to get used to. I just adore everything about this story, I laughed out loud often, yet was taken by the tenderness of the story also. It is a real mystery and the end is bloody unpredictable !!
