Doing Life by Brian Dibble

Book Description

Although she started writing early in life, it was not until her fifties that Elizabeth Jolley received the recognition her talent deserved. She won The Age Book of the Year Award on three occasions as well as the Miles Franklin Award. She has won the Western Australian Premier's Prize for both fiction and non-fiction. The array of wild characters in her fiction - misfits and those on the edge of society - can also be found in her remarkable life. Brian Dibble was given complete access to the writer's private papers and has spent more than a decade travelling the world to write this lyrical and readable biography.

Marking the Land by Brian Dibble Marking the Land, Hardback (November 2005)

There is much wisdom and many a laugh to be found in this delightful collection of Australian sayings. The play of humour, practical good sense and irony locates them unmistakably in this country, and in the particular habits of people in the bush.
