1 5 y separately published work icon The Years That the Locust Hath Eaten : The Memoirs of Marjorie Quinn Marjorie Quinn , Stephen Ireland (editor), Jill Ireland (editor), North Melbourne : Australian Scholarly Publishing , 2011 Z1827634 2011 single work autobiography

'Marjorie Quinn rubbed shoulders with virtually everybody who was anybody in Australian literature and the Arts from the 1890s onwards. She was a founding member of many literary societies including the Fellowship of Australian Writers, the Australian branch of the PEN club and the Society of Women Writers.

'Her contact with leading Australian literary figures came about through her uncle, well-known poet Roderic Quinn, and her father P E Quinn, journalist, author and NSW Federation parliamentarian.

'Including personal anecdotes of political and literary figures, with many of whom Quinn became good friends, The Years that the Locust hath Eaten is an historical document which provides a snapshot of the literary and political world of Sydney at the time of Federation and the first decades of the twentieth century.' (From the publisher's website.)
