Hewett, Dorothy

Australia and New Zealand; McPhee Gribble Penguin; 1990

Book Condition: Very Good. Paper Back. Size F: 9"-10" Tall (228-254mm). The author traces the personal and political metamorphoses of her first thirty-five years. A woman who challenged sexual and political conventions. Hewett was one of Australia's most famous playwrights and poets. In combining the passions of her life with her power as a writer she created, in this book, a classic of people, place and political history. After university, several failed love affairs and a major poetry prize, Dorothy Hewett joined the Australian Communist Party in 1945. Four years later she left her first husband and moved to Redfern, Sydney, with her lover, a boilermaker. Of Redfern, she wrote "the air is breathless with soot and smog and the knock-off whistle from the brewery, the print factory and the glassworks punctuate the day". Hers was a life of extremes: the pleasures and purgatories of a woman who tackled everything placed in her path with a searing honesty, energy and intellect. These books were purchased new and have been in storage for decades. Several copies are avaliable. 278 pages. Inventory #151390
