Description

Text has unearthed four previously out-of-print novels to celebrate one of Australian YA's most revered authors, Robin Klein. That these iconic novels were ever out-of-print is an injustice - they are poignant, funny, and every bit as fresh as when they were first published. Came Back to Show You I Could Fly, adapted to film in 1993 as Say a Little Prayer, is an iconic and heartwarming novel about an unlikely friendship between a lonely boy, Seymour, and a troubled, older girl, Angie. Klein's respectful and nuanced drawing of Angie's struggle with addiction is as touching and timely as ever.

Author Biography

Robin Klein was born 28 February 1936 in Kempsey, New South Wales into a family of nine children. Leaving school at age 15, Klein worked several jobs before becoming established as a writer, having her first story published at age 16. She would go on to write more than 40 books, including Hating Alison Ashley (adapted into a feature film starring Delta Goodrem in 2005), Halfway Across the Galaxy and Turn Left (adapted into a television series for the Seven Network in 1992), and Came Back to Show You I Could Fly (adapted into a film directed by Richard Lowenstein in 1993). Klein's books are hugely celebrated, having won the CBCA Children's Book of the Year Award in both the Younger Readers and the Older Readers categories, as well as a Human Rights Award for Literature in 1989 for Came Back to Show You I Could Fly. Klein is widely considered one of Australia's most prolific and beloved YA authors.
