AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Deborah Jordan relates some of her experiences in writing a a book, and subsequently self-publishing it, about her mother's life as a writer. Writing Mothers/Writing Daughters is a theme explored in different contexts, and in different genres. One thinks of Dursilla Modjeska's Poppy or of the biography of Edna Ryan by her equally acclaimed daughter. Jordan addresses the making of There's a Woman in the House, A 1950s Journey, which is a self publishing venture to celebrate the life and work of her own mother, through her own voice, with a collection of her own writings as a freelance journalist in the 1950s. It addresses, some of the issues that arose in the process of re-discovery and publication and some of the ideologies and options of genre. (Publisher's abstract, xviii)
