This is an auction for two books by BARBARA BIGGS.

They are:




"He was 42 and one of Australia's most successful criminal barristers. She was 14, a runaway with nowhere to go. She later learnt the barrister had bought her from her grandmother... So begins Barbara Biggs's account of the dark side of the permissive Seventies; an extraordinary story told with humour and unflinching honesty. At 13 she runs away from a home for wayward girls. At 16 she admits herself to a psychiatric hospital. At 18 she escapes Cambodia as it falls to the Khmer Rouge. At 19 she is a prostitute in Japan..."

From Wikipedia:

"Barbara Biggs (born 1956) is an Australian journalist, social commentator, author and child protection campaigner. Biggs' first book was a 2003 autobiography, called IN MORAL DANGER, about her life up to the age of 22. The book tells of her sexual abuse from the age of 14 by a well-known criminal barrister. It explains the damaging after effects following her abuse, including time spent in a psychiatric hospital, escaping Cambodia weeks before it fell to the Khmer Rouge, and being a prostitute in Japan. It also describes how she attempted suicide, received death threats and caused national headlines - all before the age of 22. Biggs has been interviewed about her story by some of Australia and Britain's leading journalists. In New Zealand IN MORAL DANGER became number one on the best-seller list and it has been published in Sweden, Greece and Japan. The book and its sequel, THE ROAD HOME, are the subject of a feature film in production, funded by Film Victoria..."
