My Brilliant Career

Miles FRANKLIN (1879 - 1954)


Sybella "There is no plot in this story, because there has been none in my life or in any other life which has come under my notice. I am one of a class, the individuals of which have no time for plots in their life, but have all they can do to get their work done without indulging in such a luxury". Like the author Miles Franklin, Sybella grows up in the bush , and as her family's fortunes decline , so her feelings rise that life should hold more for her than the relentless hard physical work farming marginal land in times of drought.(Summary by Annise)
