Notes

  • 'Tom Hope' was later substantially re-worked by Henderson and published as the novel Nelligang. The differences between the serial version which appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald and the later published novel are such that they should be regarded as two distinct works.

Works about this Work

From Hagiography to Personal Pain : Stories of Australian Foster Care from the Nineteenth Century to the Twenty-First Dee Mitchell , 2017 single work criticism
— Appears in: Adoption and Culture , vol. 5 no. 2017; (p. 89-109)

'Stories—fictional, biographical, and autobiographical—are one way in which we can imagine what it has been like to experience foster care in Australia. In this paper I look at the trends in stories told about foster care from the nineteenth century, across the twentieth, and into the early twenty-first century. While exploring these trends, I make some observations about the shift from fictional accounts where foster parents and foster children were heroic characters to often searing tales of hurt and trauma inflicted on children in foster care by violent women and men.'
