Is it naughty to comment on Conte's Zookeeper's War here rather than on the Austlit blog where I oughter to say Yes, you should read it, it is well worth it, well-written, well researched particularly - the zoo stuff, the wartime stuff but b, Only PP could judge the representation of female experience given therein as whatever he said it was in the AGE. Some of the motivations in there are just cryptic. And not in a good way. meanwhile, Ochre and Rust is worth having for Ch 7 alone 'The Magic Garb of Daisy Bates' with wonderful picture, caption: 'Gaberdine suit purchased by Daisy Bates in about 1904 and worn by her until her death in 1951'. Why don't I get that kind of wear out of my frocks...It just has the best pictures (and analysis) of stuff.
Love, Tyaakian

Oh excellent, I might have known you'd have read both already. Missed the Age comment but will hunt it down.

You are very welcome to comment wherever you please. I hope you have also voted in the poll, which I hope to make a weekly feature.

But of course I voted, and as its anonymous I'll tell you I voted for not having to look at Brendan so much anymore, although perhaps it is more not having to listen to him so much, as I usually catch him on radio...
