About the Author

Authors Bio, not available


'The discovery of such otherwise obscured truths is precisely what makes history so valuable and what makes the author of Ladies Lounge an outstanding historian.' Australian Quarterly 'This is one of those simple ideas that illuminate the corners of history: Clare Wright's detailed examination of the lot of the lady publican speaks volumes about the way women have negotiated private and professional life for the past 200 years.' Age 'Beyond the Ladies Lounge is the product of extensive historical research, and the many interviews with young and not so young women publicans lend the sense of humane and genuine engagement with the subject matter. It is also a book that urges us to consider the complexity and nuances of history.' Quadrant 'Beyond the Ladies Lounge is an important contribution to Australian history...a fine scholarly work.' -- Aviva Tuffield Australian Book Review 'Written with a novelist's eye for detail, a comic's sense of humour and a researcher's devotion to the riches of the past, this story of female publicans in Australia is a necessary and welcome addition to our national culture and mythology.' Weekend Australian
