'Weekly, nicknamed The Newspaper, cleans the houses on Claremont Street, spreading the neighbourhood gossip as she works. No one knows or cares where Weekly goes in her spare time, or what she dreams of at night – no one, that is, until Nastasya discovers her secret.' (Publication summary)

Works about this Work

Elizabeth Jolley : A Cross-Cultural Life in Writing Barbara Milech , Brian Dibble , 2010 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australian Studies , vol. 2 no. 2010;

'Elizabeth Jolley is one of Australia's most significant writers: she published some two dozen books of fiction, essays and radio dramas, won every major Australian literary award, received four honorary doctorates, was awarded the Order of Australia for service to Australian Literature in 1988, and was named an Australian 'National Living Treasure' in 1997.

Her career has its roots in the UK, the place of her birth, schooling and early marriage. In 1959 she travelled with her three children and her husband to Perth, Western Australia, where Leonard Jolley took up a position as foundation Librarian of the University of Western Australia. She brought with her a trunk full of unpublished/rejected manuscripts which provided the initial materials from which she developed her published fictions and essays in Australia.

This article explores the institutional frameworks in Australia which enabled Jolley - a constant writer from childhood - to develop, in David Carter's phrase, 'a career in writing' from the mid-1970s onwards. It argues that Jolley rewrote her foundation manuscripts (written in another country) both to imagine Australian lives and to conform to Australian publishers' requirements. In doing so, it traces how the fiction and essays translate the experience of migration/exile, often thematised through the recurrent image of being 'on the edge,' into the particular and powerful ethic of love that informs Jolley's writing.' (Author's abstract)

'The Art of Gain': Usury and Substance in Elizabeth Jolley's The Newspaper of Claremont Street Patrick West , 2008 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antipodes , June vol. 22 no. 1 2008; (p. 65-70)
Patrick West argues: 'The primary effect of Elizabeth Jolley's novel The Newspaper of Claremont Street is a denial of any lasting Aboriginal presence on Australian land. It produces this effect by "filling the space" of potential Aboriginality with a universalized presentation of the archaic, European, economic antagonism between usury and substance.... the most objectionable thing about The Newspaper of Claremont Street is that its fundamental preoccupation is elevated into myth, making of the complete novel a powerful instrument of white colonization.'
