This is an auction for MY CAREER GOES BUNG by Miles Franklin. reviews:

"I adore this book. Published in 1946, but written in 1902, right after 19-year-old Miles Franklin became a huge hit with 'My Brilliant Career'. It has been really fun reading Stella Maria Sarah Miles Franklin at the same time as Virginia Woolf, the one young and passionate, the other one older and cutting. Both ahead of their time. I think I enjoyed "My Career Goes Bung" even more than "My Brilliant Career," because of her desperation to go to Sydney, and then her disillusionment with it. Her characterisations are wonderful and so are her descriptions!"

"Miles Franklin was ahead of her time with regards to the women's equality and the paternalism of the Church. She is quite critical of many aspects of life, particularly society people. But times have changed since then, and partly due to her books."

"In this sequel to Miles Franklin's famous novel My Brilliant Career, once again we encounter the enchanting Sybylla Melvyn. She's a little older now, catapulted from bush obscurity into sudden fame with the publication of her autobiography. Sybylla goes to fashionable Sydney to further her career in the literary world, but her patrons, her critics and her innumerable suitors meet more than they bargained for in the wilful Sybylla. My Career Goes Bung was written in 1900 but was not published until 1946, considered too audacious and perhaps too revealing of its creator's own persona for publication."
