My Brilliant Career (Text Classics)

Author(s): Miles Franklin


"This is not a romance - I have too often faced the music of life to the tune of hardship to waste time in snivelling and gushing over fancies and dreams; neither is it a novel, but simply a yarn - a real yarn. Oh!" Written with all the high spirits of youth, My Brilliant Career is the unforgettable tale of Sybylla Melvin, a headstrong country girl - passionate, endearing, stubborn, honest - and her fraught journey from rags to riches to rags.

Product Information

'The book is true to Australia-the truest I ever read.' -- Henry Lawson 'Franklin shines an intense light not only into the deep recesses of a bright young mind but on the dark corners of inequality caused by "the rope of class distinction". Indeed, the author is most searingly brilliant when depicting those who poignantly fail to achieve brilliance.' Guardian
