DREAMHOUSE It should have been a perfect summer, but for Louise and Rennie their dreamhouse is the stuff of nightmares. Kate Grenville's extraordinary, disturbing novel evokes the mystery and menace underpinning everyday life. BEARDED LADIES Kate Grenville's bearded ladies live on the fringe of things, where nothing is quite as it seems. Their beards may be invisible, but the women and men in these highly acclaimed black comedies are just as out of step and out of place as if they were in a side show.

Picture of Joan Makes History (2002 ed)
"Joan Makes History is a joy to read: it provokes thought while it entertains, and should become a classic." Dale Spender Kate Grenville's wonderfully irreverent novel rewrites 200-odd years of Australia's past. Joan is a wife and mother of no great distinction, but in the life of her imagination she is in the front line of events, effortlessly subverting the solemnity of momentous occasions and cheerfully altering the course of history.
