Item description An unmissable collection of writing on what it means to be a grandmother-edited by literary journalist and writer Helen Elliott. Free delivery on online orders of $119.99 or more anywhere in Australia
An anthology of essays by twenty-four Australian women, edited by Helen Elliott, about the many aspects of being a grandmother in the 21st century. It seems so different from the experience we had of our grandmothers. Although perhaps the human essential, love, hasn’t shifted much? In thoughtful, provoking, uncompromising writing, a broad range of women reflect on vastly diverse experiences. This period of a woman’s life, a continuation and culmination, is as defining as any other and the words ‘grand' and ‘mother' rearrange and realign themselves into bright focus.The contributors: Stephanie Alexander, Maggie Beer, Judith Brett, Jane Caro, Elizabeth Chong, Cresside Collette, Ali Cobby Eckermann, Helen Garner, Anastasia Gonis, Glenda Guest, Katherine Hattam, Celestine Hitiura Vaite, Yvette Holt, Cheryl Kernot, Ramona Koval, Alison Lester, Joan London, Jenny Macklin, Auntie Daphne Milward, Mona Mobarek, Carol Raye and Gillian Triggs.
