Notorious Australian Women

The sensational lives and exploits of some of Australia's most audacious women

by

Kay Saunders

 

************

 

ABC/HarperCollinsPublishers Australia, 2011.

9 x 6 in. 312 pages.

Condition: very good. This is a nice clean, straight copy with light general signs of use. There is a gift inscription on the half title page, but no other markings at all.

 

************

 

This book celebrates the lives of some of Australia'smost fearless, brash and scandalous women. There's Tilly Devine, who went from streetwalker in London to wealthy Sydney madam and standover merchant; Mary Bryant, the highway robber and First Fleeter who escaped by rowing from Port Jackson to Timor with her two children; Lola Montez, the Irish-born grande horizontale, who destroyed King Ludwig I of Bavaria; Ellen Tremaye and Marion Edwards, women who challenged the gender order and became men; and Helena Rubinstein, who rewrote her humble Polish background and became one of the most successful and astute businesswomen in the world.

From bushrangers, courtesans and cross-dressers, to writers, designers and a radical or two, what these splendid rebels have in common is a determination to take their destinies into their own hands.
