Book 'After Romulus'
After the book and film 'Romulus My Father' Raimond Gaita writes his Memoir After Romulus
"Memoir Rural Victoria the 1950's was a far cry from the Europe that Romulus and Christina Gaita left behind. Against a harsh new landscape. Christina grew increasingly fragile and eventually left Romulus and their son. Rai, to be with her lover, Mitru. In the family home, Frogmore, Mitru's brother, Hora, became a second father to Rai. The writer revisits his childhood and tries to understand the anguish that led his mother to suicide"
'People have often asked me how I survived my childhood reasonably sane. They think it was because my father and Hora loved me deeply and that I never doubted it. But as much as, perhaps more than that, it was the fact that I came to see the world in the light that my fathers goodness cast upon it.'
