DESCRIPTION:
Exiles At Home traces the lives of a generation of Australia's women writers through letters, diaries, notebooks and the memories of their contemporaries. 'Invaluable to all readers seriously interested in the history of Australian literature.' Weekend Australian At the end of the 1920s Christina Stead had left Australia and was poised to write Seven Poor Men of Sydney. In London Miles Franklin was producing her first Brent of Bin Bin book and would soon return to Australia. Katharine Susannah Prichard was enlarging her view of black and white in outback Australia, and the team writing under the name M. Barnard Eldershaw had published its first novel and won the Bulletin prize. Gathering these writers into a network by her support and criticism was the influential Nettie Palmer.

'It is a great pleasure to read, to follow her skilful and discerning negotiations between the writers' views
