Works about this Work

Reading Australia : 'Jessica Anderson's Tirra Lirra by the River' Kerryn Goldsworthy , 2015 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australian Book Review , March no. 369 2015; (p. 30-32)

'In 1978, Australia’s two most coveted national literary prizes of the time were both won by women: Helen Garner’s first novel Monkey Grip (1977) won the National Book Council Award for fiction, and the Miles Franklin Literary Award was won by Tirra Lirra by the River (1978), Jessica Anderson’s fourth novel. Both of these books have since become classics of Australian literature, rarely out of print and regularly rediscovered by new generations of readers.' (Author's introduction 30)
