A novel by

A story of restless youth, soaring ambition, thwarted dreams.

A sequel to her: Up the country, and, Ten creeks run.

Stella Maria Sarah Miles Franklin, known as Miles Franklin (14 October 1879 - 19 September 1954) was an Australian writer and feminist who is best known for her novel My Brilliant Career, published in 1901. While she wrote throughout her life, her other major literary success, All That Swagger, was not published until 1936.

She was committed to the development of a uniquely Australian form of literature, and she actively pursued this goal by supporting writers, literary journals, and writers' organisations. She has had a long-lasting impact on Australian literary life through her endowment of a major literary award known as the Miles Franklin Award.
