"Sybylla Melvyn is well known to the tens of thousands who have read her first "autobiography", My Brilliant Career. In this, the sequel, however, the real Sybylla emerges--a little older now and facing the sudden change from bush obscurity to overnight fame. The publication of her novel has been a success, fashionable Sydney society lionises her and innumerable suitors pay court. Once again Sybylla recounts her experiences with spirit, sensitivity and fortrightness and once again she emerges as an irrepressible, undaunted young woman and a most exceptional Australian heroine."--Goodreads

Yarn spinners : a story in letters by Dymphna Cusack( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dymphna Cusack, Miles Franklin and Florence James come alive on these pages through their friendships, their aspirations, their passions and achievements, their disappointments, insecurities and triumphs. In Yarn Spinners Marilla North tells the tale of their personal and professional lives through their correspondence, meticulously curated, edited and woven together with subtle narrative links. Editing is too modest a word for what Marilla North has done in this trove of letters, artfully assembled from thousands she recovered in a labour extending over 12 years. She has topped and tailed and interwoven them, then filled the gaps with narrative and notes, and in the process created a unique literary form. As the story flows from one to the other, the effect is, as North hoped, like a novel with three unfailingly lively female characters. --Barry Oakley
