The death of my beautiful German Shepherd Phoenix earlier this week means I'm looking for books at the moment that distract, and to be honest I wasn't convinced I wanted to read My Life by the wife of Carl Williams - Roberta.  Tied up with the gangland wars in Melbourne, Roberta was married to Carl at a time when he became one of the most prolific killers in Melbourne's history.  This book is very much told in her own voice, but more on that when I get a chance to put some semi-coherent comments together.
