Why has no one heard of Edna Cranmer?

When a young woman is hired to write the life of unknown artist Edna Cranmer from Geelong, she thinks it will be just another quick commission paid for by a rich, grieving family obsessed with their own history. She is wrong…

This week, we have three copies of The Biographer’s Lover by Ruby J. Murray to give away. This elegant and engrossing novel explores how we value and celebrate art and artists’ lives. It deals with Australia’s complex relationship with memory, and the role gender plays in the ways we represent not only national myths but our private versus our public selves.

As the story unfolds, we learn that Edna Cranmer was not simply a privileged housewife with a paintbrush. In fact, her work spanned decades. Soaring images of red dirt, close interiors and distant jungles. Edna could have been an official war artist. So why did she choose to hide herself away? Or were there people who didn’t want her to become famous? As the biographer is pulled into Edna’s life, she is confronted with the fact that how she tells Edna’s past will affect her own future.

We think this sounds like a cracking read! So, to win one of the three copies, this week tell us what title a biography of YOUR life would have. Feel free to have fun with it! And if you’re one of our three favourite entries, YOU will win a copy of this new book. It’s that simple.

ENTER USING THE FORM BELOW.

Entries close midday Monday 20 August 2018, Sydney/Melbourne time.

THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED. THANKS FOR YOUR ENTRIES. THE WINNERS WILL BE CONTACTED BY EMAIL AND ANNOUNCED IN OUR NEWSLETTER.
