A selection of letters written by poet and author, Kate Llewellyn in her mid career. The letters tell of the struggle the make a living as a writer, and show her to be a warm, funny, brave and vulnerable person. Well worth reading for insights into her, into the life of writers, and into her views on other Aussie writers.

Kate Llewellyn's letters brim with energy and humour. Editors Ruth Bacchus and Barbara Hill have sifted through decades of correspondence to produce a volume which reveals her life and work, and the result is a joy to read: a precious insight into the world of one of this country's master wordsmiths.… (more)
