Secondhand. Very good condition. Minor wear to book corners and edges.
A classic, accessible, award-winning biography of Australia's most iconic author, leading feminist and humanitarian.
Propelled to fame aged only twenty-one in the wake of her bestselling novel My Brilliant Career, she never again achieved the same literary success, but her life was rich and productive.
She published sixteen novels, numerous non-fiction books and articles, and maintained a prolific and entertaining correspondence with friends and acquaintances.
If her extraordinary achievements in life were not enough, her endowment of the Miles Franklin Literary Award on her death ensured she would never be forgotten. In 2013 the Stella Prize for Australian Women's Writing, named in honour of Stella Maria 'Miles' Franklin, was awarded for the first time, gilding her reputation further. (back cover)
