"Immense originality, wit, and gritty wisdom. . . . David Ireland has reached the top."--Patrick White
An imaginative tour de force, A Woman of the Future is the story of the young life of Anthea Hunt--from conception to sexual awakening. It is controversial and brilliant, and unlike anything else in Australian literature.
Winner of Age Book of the Year 1980 and Miles Franklin Literary Award 1979.
David Ireland is the author of The Chantic Bird, three Miles Franklin Award winners - The Unknown Industrial Prisoner, The Glass Canoe and A Woman of the Future - and Archimedes and the Seagull.
