About Book

Book Description
The fierce, irreverent novel of aspiration and rebellion that is both a cornerstone of Australian literature and a feminist classic

Miles Franklin began the candid, passionate, and contrary My Brilliant Career when she was only sixteen, intending it to be the Australian answer to Jane Eyre. But the book she produced—a thinly veiled autobiographical novel about a young girl hungering for life and love in the outback—so scandalized her country upon its appearance in 1901 that she insisted it not be published again until ten years after her death.

About the Author
Miles Franklin (1879–1954) was born Stella Maria Sarah Miles Franklin in Talbingo, New South Wales. Following the publication of My Brilliant Career, she worked as a nurse and journalist and became active in the Australian feminist movement.
Sandra Gilbert, coauthor of the influential The Madwoman in the Attic, is the author of seven collections of poetry, a memoir, and numerous critical works. She has won an American Book Award and the John Ciardi Award for Lifetime Achievement in Poetry.
