Annotation. This is a selection of writings by women from Ireland, Australia, England, Canada (and other countries) compiled and edited by Irish-Australian poet, Lizz Murphy. A moving and often amusing collection of fiction, poetry, and autobiography by top-selling and award-winning writers. There is a wildness and daring in these voices. They call up the legions out of the sea and set fires alight. They hang out over garden fences, move restlessly, are beaming, weeping, powerful.
