AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'KAREN Lamb has produced an excellent piece of “life writing” in her biography of the Queensland author, Thea Astley. Astley, a successful Australian author by any standards, has contributed 16 published works and many articles to Australian literature, winning the Miles Franklin Award four times. Thea Astley was an All Hallows School girl from Brisbane, a graduate of The University of Queensland, and a Queensland school teacher for the first few years of her career, combining the roles of wife and mother, teacher, academic and prolific author, in what appeared to be a seamless fashion. Karen Lamb, in her carefully researched work, opens the door to the private life of Astley and allows the reader to follow her career and life journey, including the juggling of roles and commitments.'
