    My Congenials Miles Franklin and Friends in Letters Edited by Jill Roe Brand New Unused in Excellent Condition Smoke and Pet Free Home About the Book An irresistible companion to Jill Roe's award-winning biography STELLA MILES FRANKLIN A new edition of the sparkling correspondence of one of Australia's most cherished literary icons Miles Franklin wrote the first of these letters at Brindabella in 1887, over a decade before she started My Brilliant Career, the novel that famously propelled her out of the bush and on to Sydney and the world. the correspondence follows her to the Women's trade Union League in Chicago, to war work in the Balkans, to a return to writing in London, and finally home in the 1930s. After her nearly thirty years away, the letters now more than ever allowed Miles to share with 'her congenials' - friends in England, Europe, the USA and Australia - experiences, memories and, above all, her commitment to Australian literature. the last letter in this collection was written only sixteen days before her death. As well as Miles Franklin's own witty and provocative correspondence, the selection includes letters from her life-long friends, such as Alice Henry and Vida Goldstein, Katharine Susannah Pritchard, Dymphna Cusack and Beatrice Davis. Selected and edited by Jill Roe, the letters crackle with the surprises of a life richly lived. Presented for the first time in one volume, with a fresh introduction and new notes, plus additional biographical data, this collection offers a rare insight into the mind and times of a brilliant woman.
