Happy new year to you all! I’m back from my travels and blogging again.
I discover on my return that the conversation about women’s writing continues, with Jane Sullivan’s excellent piece – ‘A woman’s place’ – featured in the Age last Friday, Kerryn Goldsworthy’s brilliant post ‘Ten legendary bad girls of literature’ in response to Random House’s link to an article on 10 legendary literary bad boys, Elizabeth Lhuede’s ‘Australian Women’s Writers 2012 Challenge’ kicking off, James Tierney’s thoughtful blog post about women’s writing and Lhuede’s challenge, and no doubt more I’ve yet to stumble across in the blogosphere.
I plan to write more on the subject later this week, but first up for 2012 is some exciting news for Double Entry: it will be published in the UK in September by Allen & Unwin and in north America in October by WW Norton.
And in Australia a paperback edition is underway, due out around April I’m told.
Stay tuned for more on LOOK and women’s writing, the first classic of 2012 (Jane Austen’s Persuasion), and more mathematical esoterica from Luca Pacioli and Leonardo da Vinci.
