'A study of 20th century female friendship played out in Australia and England. Ms Martin concentrates on two important friendships in the life of writer and political activist, Mary Fullerton. Mabel Singleton, Mary's companion of more than 30 years, and the parenting of Mabel's only child inform research into the erotic elements of their writings. While Miles Franklin and Mary were colleagues, all three were devoted friends.'
