Elizabeth Jolley Appreciation

Elizabeth Jolley has been one of the great Australian writrs over the past 30 years with such works as The Well, which won the Miles Franklin Award in 1986, and Mr Scobie's Riddle, My Father's Moon and The Georges' Wife, all of which won the Age Book of the Year Award. But we haven't heard from her since her 2001 novel An Innocent Gentleman. And now comes the news that age is catching up with her.

In "The Sunday Age" over the weekend Helen Garner published an appreciation of her friend and long-time correspondent. A beautiful piece of writing.
