(VIRTUAL) TALKS BY WOMEN WRITERS
in conversation with NICOLE ABaDEE
Anna Goldsworthy’s accomplished first novel Melting Moments tells the story of Ruby Jenkins and of her family. The lives of three generations of Australian women are subtly, tenderly yet sharply and humorously drawn in this moving fiction debut by an award-winning writer
Melting Moments is a quiet masterpiece. An intimate portrait and celebration of the interior life of a woman who is a dutiful daughter, wife and mother, it is certain to become an Australian classic. ALEX MILLER
A generous and vivid picture of the microscopic details of so many women’s lives … a feminist document of a particularly penetrating kind. CARMEL BIRD
