Review

Sweet surprises and gems of life observations shine through in The Toorak Jackpot. Rosemary Macindoe's "The Toorak Jackpot" is a touching parable about the true meaning of wealth. When Bert discovers that an anonymous benefactor has given him ten million dollars, he gives up his job as a successful shoe salesman to assume his role as a prince in the Melbourne suburb of Toorak. What ensues is a topsy-turvy series of events as Bert struggles with the new extravagances in his life and the dilemmas-emotional and spiritual-that they create. Using Bert's transformation from a happy and hardworking Italian Australian to a fun-loving millionaire who struggles to find meaning in his life, "The Toorak Jackpot" effectively explores the meaning of wealth on tangible and intangible levels. Australian culture is solidly if somewhat stereotypically represented by colloquialisms from "mate" to "dag," views of Australian stores, references to the beer-drinking prime minister, and Bert's own focus on beer drinking and his laid-back attitude toward the changes in his life. ... Sweet surprises and gems of life observations shine through in The Toorak Jackpot. Review by Maya Fleischmann for Foreword Reviews --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
