Louise Crisp

Interviewed by Eve Klein on 14 August 2000

Eve Klein. What sort of dangers, or worries were you warned about when you were a child? Anything to do with snakes or spiders, or people?

Louise Crisp. Only if perhaps – you didn’t ever accept sweets from a stranger. I remember daddy saying that to me, and you never accepted a ride from anyone that you didn’t know really well. I felt it was quite safe really. Oh, and there was a lovely old man that lived on the pathway going to Mosman, in a big cave. I think that could have been a bit frightening, but he was so nice. He always waved to us when we went to school and he boiled the billy, and that was his house.
