My family and other animus

James Jeffrey
An ode to family life in all its glorious mess and chaos
For the young James Jeffrey, the day his parents split was like the splitting of the atom. Life took on a seismic instability filled with madness and strain and vendetta and daftness and acts of love, both beautiful and misguided. Yet, what could have been a calamitous upbringing turned instead into an education. For better or worse, his family handed out lessons that would guide him through life, into marriage, and eventually parenthood. My Family and Other Animus is an ode to his family.

A gentle, lyrical and funny read that expertly steers between sweetness and sorrow ... this life-affirming book rings with authenticity.”
Leigh Sales

This is his offering to readers, and to his beloved children, who are getting “some of that love and magic from even those they barely knew — all part of the great continuum”.”
The Australian

It must have taken some courage for James to write so openly about the collateral damage. However brutal the message, we should all be glad he did.”
Caroline Overington
