A SPINIFEX FEMINIST CLASSIC
Award-winning author Finola Moorhead stitches together essays, reviews and short stories that make an incisive comment of the process of writing. She writes of sentences and mathematics, of rubbish bins and nightmares, of nuns and abortions. Through it all are is the invisible stitching of an author for whom five finger exercises are for more than musical training. Her writing encompasses photography and theatre and on the surprising histories of women.
Write a review.
Finola Moorhead pulls no punches, her voice is extraordinarily fresh, direct and honest, she takes chances, she is often surreal, and always challenging in both her ideas and style. Tough and uncompromising, she writes out of the modern nitty gritty of Australian life. It’s fascinating to see the impact her work makes when it is brought together under one cover.Dorothy Hewett
