Summary
The fierce, irreverent novel of aspiration and rebellion that is both a cornerstone of Australian literature and a feminist classicMiles 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hungering for life and love in the outback—so scandalized her country upon its appearance in 1901 that she insisted it not be published again until ten years after her death
Summary
"This is not a romance. I have too often faced the music of life to the tune of hardship to waste time in snivelling and gushing over fancies and dreams; neither is it a novel, but simply a yarn - a real yarn. Oh!" Written with all the high spirits of youth, My Brilliant Career is the unforgettable tale of Sybylla Melvin, a headstrong country girl - passionate, endearing, stubborn, honest - and her fraught journey from rags to riches to rags.
