So much joy from this morning’s bookmail! The Tallow-Wife and Other Tales is finally here! When I say “finally” I don’t mean the fact it was published last week and is in my hot little paws this week, I mean “finally” after I started it in 2013/14. I was fortunate to be awarded a Queensland Writers Fellowship for this project – it just took longer than expected to get here.
With an Intro by Helen Marshall, illustrations by Kathleen Jennings, and wondrous attention to design by Ray and Rosalie at Tartarus, it’s a glorious thing. At the moment the hardcover limited edition and the ebook version are available. Once the 350 limited editions run out, we’ll look at doing a paperback. You can order the first two here.
