Works about this Work

Labour in Vain: the Forgotten Novels of Australia’s Radical Women Danae Bosler , 2015 single work criticism
— Appears in: Overland [Online] , June 2015;
'Not a month goes by in academia or in literary culture without a debate about Australia’s literary canon and calls for a more inclusive list. Undoubtedly our canon should include more voices from women, the LGBTI community and Indigenous Australians. But I’d like to throw forward another undervalued and underrepresented genre: women’s political agency and activism – and this year might be a good time to acknowledge it.' (Author's introduction)
Staking a Claim : Eight Mt Isa Novels Cheryl M. Taylor , 2013 single work criticism
— Appears in: Queensland Review , June vol. 20 no. 1 2013;
'Mt Isa's story is an Australian foundation epic. Only heroic struggle could have dug the mine and built the city a thousand kilometres from the nearest deepwater port, in a scorched red landscape sparsely dotted with spinifex and eucalypts. In Mines in the spinifex (1970), Geoffrey Blainey celebrates the fortitude of the prospectors and entrepreneurs who overcame these obstacles to found what he calls ‘the greatest Australian mine of the [twentieth] century’ (1970: 64).'
