Summary

Starting with a colourful childhood in Collingwood and Doncaster and ending in sunny Bondi, All I Know is a journey through the life of Mary Coustas, and a journey through the three deaths that changed her life forever. In a voice rich with big-hearted generosity and quick-witted humour, Mary Coustas shares with us the heartbreak she faced while entertaining audiences as the larger-than-life Effie Stephanidis, and the life lessons she hopes can save us from giving in to grief, or denying ourselves a full life because of it. Mary's story of these three deaths is at times heartbreaking but, ultimately, is an enriching and uplifting celebration of life. N.B. This audio edition does not include a chapter written later about the author's daughter, Jamie.
