Overview

This is Australia's past as you won't read it in any history book. Joan pops up in all over famous moments and gives her irreverent female version of them. She remakes history in her own image and asks- who gets written into history, who gets written out, and why? This is Australia's past as you won't read it in any history book. Joan pops up in all over famous moments and gives her irreverent female version of them. She remakes history in her own image and asks- who gets written into history, who gets written out, and why? 'A writer of quite extraordinary talent, slipping between the centuries with a fluid and vigorous prose style.' Literary Review 'Hugely entertaining. It is impossible to resist Grenville's warm and affectionate wit. We follow Joan's rich and complex story with a profound sense of engagement.' Courier-Mail 'Joan Makes History is a lively, witty, very wise look at the role of women in our society. Kate Grenville is a writer who knows about those things which belong to eternity.' Manning Clark
