The women at the heart of these novellas are misrepresented by men and by societal expectations. But they remain defiant. These are modern women, waiting for the world to catch up. Stead captures the contradictions and complications of the 1960s, and their effects on the lives of women and girls.

About the Author

Christina Stead (1902-1983) was an Australian-born novelist and short-story writer, acclaimed for her satirical wit and penetrating psychological characterizations. She lived in the US for many years, teaching at New York University in 1943 and 1944, and working as a Hollywood screenwriter in the 1940s. She returned to Australia only late in life. Her fourth work, The Man Who Loved Children, has been hailed as a ‘masterpiece’ by Jonathan Franzen, among others. Stead is considered one of the most influential Australian authors of the twentieth century.
