Here we go! Kerry Greenwood was born in the Melbourne suburb of Footscray and after wandering far and wide, she returned to live there. She has a degree in English and Law from Melbourne University and was admitted to the legal profession on the 1st April , a day which she finds both soothing and significant. The Phryne Fisher series pronounced Fry-knee, to rhyme with briny began in with Cocaine Blues which was a great success. Kerry has written sixteen books in this series with no sign yet of Miss Fisher hanging up her pearl-handled pistol.
Kerry says that as long as people want to read them, she can keep writing them.

Theyv are living in the Hotel Canberra. Unfortunately for Edith her brother Frederick is a reasonably powerful member of the party. This is meticulous writing, the characterisation is detailed as is the history. Loved it. These books are such fun.
This book covered an era of Australian society when women were easy prey and not really protected- it was all about show and what the neighbours would think. Perhaps nothing has changed! Afterwards, he spends his waking hours consumed by alcohol and self-pity until one night he finds himself fascinated by an old flim on TV about Hector Mann, who was a genius of the silent cinema. This fascination leads Zimemr on a journey that he could never have imagined. Auster has written a wonderful, different and gripping story that will keep me reading his other books! His books have been translated into forty-three languages.

There were complaints about the smoke and the smell.
The first trains powered by electricity were introduced in It is interesting ti note that the incentive to build underground was driven by the congestion of cart and traffic in the streets.
Knowing what is underfoot is a discovery most of us will never make; but this book is really interesting reading- almost gripping at times!

The amount of skill and hard work involved in even the most mundane farming task is well illustrated. The rituals of milking cows and indeed, of bulls mating with cows are described in rich detail. The bull that became so amorous he couldn't wait and got impaled on the spikes around the field where the cows were is a story expertly told, as is the skill involved in getting the animals ready for fair day and the day itself.
