Feminist Fables
Suniti Namjoshi

A SPINIFEX FEMINIST CLASSIC

There was once a man who thought he could do anything, even be a woman. So he acquired a baby, changed its diapers and fed the damn thing three times a night. He did all the housework, was deferential to men, and got worn out. But he had a brother, Jack Cleverfellow, who hired a wife and got it all done.

Suniti Namjoshi is elegant and subversive in creating new patterns of meaning through stories that are simultaneously spare and full of richness. An ingenious reworking of fairy tales from East and West.

'An ingenious reworking of fairy tales from East and West. Mythology, mixed with the author's original material and vivid imagination. An indespensable feminist classic.
Her imagination soars to breathtaking heights . . . she has the enviable skill of writing stories that are as entertaining as they are thought-provoking.' 
Kerry Lyon, Australian Book Review

‘The “voice” is there, helpfully warm, wrapping around us in a friendly tone. In our own India katha tone, telling us fables.’ 

The Times of India

‘In their timeless sweep through past, present and even future worlds, they invent a mythology which is creative … with wit, style and deep feeling.’
