My Brilliant Career / My Career Goes B/Franklin, Mile/Paper/0732280273/S040-D
Two classic Australian novels together in one volume.
'I am given to something which a man never pardons in a woman. You will draw away as though I were a snake when you hear.'
With this warning, Sybylla confesses to her rich and handsome suitor that she is given to writing stories and bound, therefore on a brilliant career.
In the ironically titled My Brilliant Career, the riotous first novel by Miles Franklin originally published in 1901, Sybylla tells the story if growing up passionate and rebellious in rural NSW, where the most that girls could hope for was to marry or to teach. Sybylla will do neither, but that doesn't stop her from falling in love, and it doesn't make the choices any easier.
The real Sybylla emerges in My Career Goes Bung - with the same spirit, sensitivity and forthrightness. Her experiences at home and in town, with her patrons, her critics and her innumerable suitors, will delight every reader, but will be especially intriguing and revealing to those already acquainted with this most exceptional heroine.
