Autobiography and Biography
Greece had changed me... now I had a greater sense of what was possible, what potential the world offered to those willing to plunge in... the future beginning to issue its demand.

In 'Time of Arrival' Garry Kinnane tells of a decade of living abroad - Greece, a war-affected Europe, London in the 60s and 70s, his involvement in the student movement, a scholarship to Oxford. His search for direction is aided by friends and the faith of his wife Jo, through the struggle to raise a family in times of hardship, and the ultimate desire to return home to Australia. It is a tale of journey and arrival - at a place, an achievement, a self-discovery.
This is the final volume of a trilogy that began with childhood in 'Shadowed Days', and continued with youth in 'Fare Thee Well, Hoddle Grid'.
