Description - True North: A Memoir by Catherine Deveny

An uplifting, heartfelt memoir about surviving life's upheavals - and how to live authentically

'Catherine Deveny is a blazing light in a world that is often grim. She brings her immense generosity of spirit to this beautiful memoir, and we are blessed to have her.'
Clementine Ford

When writer Catherine Deveny faced the end of a seventeen-year relationship with the father of her children, she had no idea what lay on the other side of the months of tumult- she just knew she had to create space for a new life.
But this wasn't the first time Deveny had taken a plunge into the unknown or let go of conventional assumptions. In True North, she shares how she emerged from an oppressive Catholic upbringing in working-class Reservoir, found her tribe in Fitzroy's sharehouses in the '80s, and learnt to live life on her own terms as she navigated the highs and lows of a creative life, family legacies and intimate relationships.

'This is the kind of story that stays with you long after you turn the final page.'
Michael Lallo, The Age

Chrissie Swan
'A bombshell of honesty and hope. This book has the power to heal hearts.'
