GENERAL & LITERARY FICTION. AUSTRALIAN. My Brilliant Career is a cornerstone of Australian literature and a feminist classic. Miles Franklin began the candid, passionate, and contrary "My Brilliant Career" when she was only sixteen, intending it to be the Australian answer to "Jane Eyre," But the book she produced was a thinly veiled autobiographical novel about a young girl hungering for life and love in the outback. It so scandalized her country upon its appearance in 1901 that she insisted it not be published again until ten years after her death. She wrote My Career Goes Bung the year following My Brilliant Career, she says, "as a corrective". It was rejected and not published until after her death. This printing of her two major titles is to coincide with publishing of a the new Biography "Stella Miles Franklin", by Jill Roe.
