Angus & Robertson
The artist's little sister couched her objections, as you see, in the mildest of suggestions, but they were nevertheless replete with the wisdom of the serpent.
Tasma's richly ironic stories, filled with intrigue and unforgettable characters, reflect a woman's view of colonial Australia. They provide not epics of nationhood but penetrating insights into human motivation, dealing with guilt and cruelty, sinister passions and shattering revelations.
Told with humour, judgment and compassion by a woman at home both in Australia and Europe, these dramatic stories are published together here for the first time in this volume edited by Michael Ackland.
