Author Talk - Annette Freeman introducing The Bright Side of Life

Rockdale City Library Presents
Annette Freeman introducing
The Bright Side of Life

While pursuing this woman of his dreams, Charlie is hampered by the unexpected cancellation of his acting scholarship, resulting in a complete lack of funds. He takes on a job in the country, helping the redoubtable Hattie Witherspoon run a ‘literary dramatic festival’. Hattie assumes a position of importance in Charlie’s affections after a night involving gin and a bathtub. The story follows his attempts to win Hattie’s heart and the adulation of London theatre-going audiences — or at least a paying job — in an ever-increasing maelstrom of bad luck and bad parts. But he remains confident that it will all be all right in the end. 
This picaresque story lurches from highs to lows to highs again, examining the curious question of whether it’s really a wise policy to continually look on the bright side of life.
