Author(s): Frank Vincent
Growing up in the working-class waterfront suburb of Port Melbourne, Frank Vincent became aware very early of the impact of social and economic inequality. He went on to become a successful barrister practising in criminal law before being appointed to the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal. Throughout his career, which included a lengthy period as Parole Board Chair, he never lost his concern for victims and the marginalised in our society, especially its Indigenous members. Yet this memoir is no hagiography. With modesty and wit, Vincent notes his own human fallibility and frailties, and writes with modesty and humour.
