Miles Franklin

Miles Franklin - Jill Roe

Miles Franklin

A classic, accessible award-winning biography of Australia's most iconic author, leading feminist and humanitarian. 'To meet Miles Franklin was as invigorating as to ride on a spring morning across the Monaro plains she so dearly loved,' wrote Henrietta Drake-Brockman.Author, union organiser, WWI volunteer, women's rights agitator, nationalist, Miles Franklin worked, wrote and talked for many causes, none more passionately than Australian literature. Propelled to fame aged only twenty-one in the wake of her bestselling novel My Brilliant Career, she never again achieved the same literary success, but her life was rich and productive. She published sixteen novels, numerous non-fiction books and articles, and maintained a prolific and entertaining correspondence with friends and acquaintances.

If her extraordinary achievements in life were not enough, her endowment of the Miles Franklin Literary Award on her death ensured she would never be forgotten. In 2013 the 'Stella Prize' for Australian Women's Writing, named in honour of Stella Maria 'Miles' Franklin, was awarded for the first time, gilding her reputation further.
