Women of a Certain Age
Jodie MoffatSusan Laura SullivanMaria Scoda
Anne Aly, Liz Byrski, Sarah Drummond, Mehreen Faruqi, Goldie Goldbloom, Krissy Kneen, Jeanine Leane, Brigid Lowry and Pat Mamanyjun Torres are among fifteen voices recounting what it is like to be a woman on the other side of 40. These are stories of identity and survival, and a celebration of getting older and wiser, and becoming more certain of who you are and where you want to be.
PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
‘What I loved most about this book is how it joins the long tradition of women supporting, teaching, uplifting, and guiding other women … At the end of the day, young girls and women need role models – women who have lived long, full, and three-dimensional lives to learn from. And this book provides you with fifteen of them.’ Pelican Magazine
‘This collection is lively, wise, and sometimes intensely emotional … Grab a cuppa (or something stronger if you are so inclined) and settle in for a great read!’ WritingWA
‘The strength and power of their prose, literary prowess and unique and eclectic styles makes this collection of life tales a landmark in Australian publishing in 2018.’ The Culture Concept Circle
‘Women of a Certain Age is, like its writers, frank, refreshing and thought-provoking. Also, like its authors, it breaks new ground in its genre …[it] hands the microphone to the women themselves. By the end, their voices blow away all of that assumed and presumed dust, so we can more clearly see the people beneath.’ Joan D. Bailey
