"'I have wished so many times that I had acted differently. I wish that I had been more worthy of you... Eventually the war will end, and then we will find each other. Until then, remember me.' Hungary, 1938. In a city park, beneath one of its bleakly looming statues, five Jewish mathematicians gather to trade proofs and whisper sedition. Expelled from the university since the state's new laws came into force, they speak uneasily of duty, of family and the slim possibility of escape. Melbourne, 2007. Illy has just buried her father, a violent, unpredictable man whose embittered nature she never understood. And now, the day after his funeral, Illy's unusually silent mother has gifted her a curious notebook. Its faded pages are a mix of mathematical figures and diary entries, all penned by a young woman seemingly blind to Europe's coming storm. A woman who sounds nothing like her mother... Based on a true story, Miriam Sved's beautifully crafted novel is a vivid recreation of Hungary before German occupation, a decades-old mystery locked in the histories of five students. A story about the selfless power of the human heart, even after years and worlds apart."--Provided by publisher
Game day : a novel by Miriam Sved( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new draft pick, the tired has-been, the up-and-comer, the might-have-been. The talent scout, the coach on the edge, the beleaguered umpire, the concerned medic. The number-one fan, the lifetime members, the desperate gamblers. The footballers' mums, the WAGs, the groupies. The tags, the rivals, the sledging. The pressure. Mick Reece and Jake Dooley, best mates since childhood, begin their first professional season playing AFL with little notion of what they're getting into: the complexity of the beast that the game must feed
Mothers and others : Australian writers on why not all women are mothers and not all mothers are the same( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'When are you having children?' 'Why didn't you have another child?' 'Well, I guess that's your choice, but ... ' They are questions asked of women all the time. Beneath them is the assumption that all women want to have children, and the judgement that if they don't, they'll be somehow incomplete. And that's only the beginning
#metoo : stories from the Australian movement( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In October 2017, the hashtag MeToo went viral. Since then we've watched controversy erupt around Geoffrey Rush, Germaine Greer and Junot Diaz. We've talked about tracking the movement back via Helen Garner, Rosie Batty and Hannah Gadsby. We've discussed #NotAllMen, toxic masculinity and trolls. We've seen the #MeToo movement evolve and start to accuse itself - has it gone too far? Is it enough? What does it mean in this country? And still, women are not safe from daily, casual sexual harassment and violence. In this collection thirty-five contributors share their own #MeToo stories, analysis and commentary to survey the movement in an Australian context. This collection resists victimhood. It resists silence. It insists on change
All being equal : the Novella Project VI( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Late last year, after a decade of what was at times a bitter and divisive debate, Australians made it clear that their understanding of equality included formal recognition of the most intimate relationships. The parliament responded to the voice of the people and passed legislation to allow same-sex marriage. A year on, Griffith Review 62: All Being Equal - The Novella Project VI investigates what this means: is it a sign of a new-found appetite for equality? The primacy of love and family? A measure of a flawed political process? Or the mark of a new approach to political decision-making? Judged by Benjamin Law, Melissa Lucashenko, Dennis Altman and Aviva Tuffield, this edition features works of both fiction and creative non-fiction. All Being Equal explores the texture of equality in all its forms, bringing to life the big issues in the national narrative and the stories around them. This edition of Griffith Review is supported by the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund.--publisher
