Tell Me Again: A Memoir by Amy Thunig – Our Review


Our Review…

‘Tell Me Again’ is a visceral and powerful memoir by Amy Thunig. It is one of my favourite books this year, and an absolute must read.

Dr Amy Thunig is a Gomeroi/Gamilaroi/Kamilaroi yinarr (woman) and mother who resides on the unceded lands of the Awabakal peoples. She is an academic and educator, and when she speaks, we stop and listen.

In her memoir, Amy shares so vulnerably and openly of her upbringing and ultimately her story of survival growing up with family who fought addiction, poverty, and incarceration.

Journeying through the many challenges of intergenerational trauma, discrimination and grief emerges a woman who has found a profound voice that will cut through the privilege and speak on behalf of the disempowered.

Beautifully written and filled with so much graciousness this memoir will stay with you for time to come. Once you’ve finished this breathtaking read, tuning into Amy’s TED talk will be next on your agenda. Highly recommend.
