What people are saying...

'Hippy Days, Arabian Nights is an enthralling memoir of an unconventional life boldly lived, told with sparkling description, affectionate humour and from a full heart.’ - Anne Crawford, author


‘This fascinating memoir will take you deeply into the lives of back-to-the-earth, self-sustaining hippies of the 80s and 90s and a passionate relationship between a feminist free-thinker and an Egyptian man twenty-seven years her junior. Artist Katherine Boland lived on the edge of social mores that most of us cling to. She tells her extraordinary story with humour, insight and a painterly eye.' - Jill Sanguinetti, author

‘A wonderful depiction of living without bounds and loving without fear. Katherine writes like she lives: courageously, passionately and without regret.' - Kimina Lyall, former South East Asian correspondent, The Australian

‘Funny, wry, heart breaking at times but always utterly absorbing, this is a must read. Katherine will charm readers with her self-deprecating humour and engaging frankness.’- Rebecca Barber, Australian National University Library

'Exquisitely crafted prose and a whimsical sense of humour, the captivating imagery will have you wishing you lived in Katherine's shoes. A gripping story of true love,' - Cheryl Keonig, author
