Small Wrongs

Kate Rossmanith's memoir Small Wrongs: How we really say sorry in love, life and law (Hardie Grant Books, June 2018) is about remorse in the justice system and remorse in our everyday personal lives. It combines original fieldwork and interviews in the criminal courts, and intimate experiences of marriage and parenthood. What does it mean to demand an apology from someone? How can you ever tell if a person is truly sorry for what they have done?

"A sincere and delicate inquiry that moves with grace between public and private pain." - Helen Garner
