Criena Rohan is the pseudonym of Deirdre Cash. Born in Melbourne in 1925, she worked as a singer and ballroom dancer. She published two novels, The Delinquents (1962) and Down by the Dockside (1963). She died of cancer in 1963 at the age of 36.
In this novel, Lisha Flynn is Australian by birth, from a Liverpool Irish family. Raised by her grandmother, she grows up in the tough slums of Port Melbourne during the Depression. Excited by wartime, she marries a sailor at 17, becomes a mother at 18, and a widow at 21. In desperation she turns to the poor Irish people of her childhood. She sings in nightclubs, teaches in back street dancing schools, and associates with petty criminals. A colourful account of wartime Australian life with flashes of humour. - jacket notes. ( )
