Faces in the Street
She struggled to get women the vote. Her son was Australia's most famous writer. They drove each other crazy. Meticulously researched 575-page Aussie historical novel on set mostly in the 1890s. It shows the world in which Louisa Lawson & Henry Lawson and their circle of radical friends lived: revolution, poverty, love affairs, madness, drunkenness, sedition, terrorism, passionate hopes, and friendships with some of Australia's most remarkable people. Much historical material here doesn't appear in their biographies. Read on + glossary. "Good stuff - experientially, politically, anecdotally, stylistically, narratively, romantically, alcoholically. What more can one say?" Douglas Houston, PhD, co-editor of the Oxford Good Fiction Guide Note: Lulu's TEEN rating = "suitable for persons ages 13+," not "teenage book."
