  1. Thanks so much for this lovely blog–It keeps me up to date with Australian lit, since I live in the States. I have been keeping up a blog about my mother, Glenda Adams, and her writing, since she died in 2007: It has a much more personal scope than yours, but I am reminded of my mother, her peers and friends when I read your blog.

  2. Hello Caitlin, I am looking forward to reading your mother’s novel. I had been hunting for Dancing on Coral for a while when I came across it in a bookshop in country NSW, and was delighted to add it to my collection of Miles Franklin first editions. I am gradually reading my way through the winners list in more or less chronological order and expect to get to it some time in the next year or so – so I hope you visit again:)
