Description

Author(s): Greer, Germaine, Richardson, Henry Handel

Introduced by Germaine Greer 'I have been reading your Getting of Wisdom with enormous admiration...... Your little rag of a girl is a most adorable little beast.' H. G. Wells, letter to Henry Handel Richardson One of the most memorable characters in Australian fiction, Laura Rambotham, aged twelve, enters the portals of an exclusive girls' school eager to be accepted. But this precocious country girl is snubbed and ridiculed by her fellow students, who are richer, more attractive and more adept at dealing with life's hypocrisies. The Getting of Wisdom, a wicked and satirical novel on the pain and confusion of growing up, first appeared in 1910. A century later it has lost none of its bite. In her splendid introduction Germaine Greer describes this classic as 'Richardson's only great book precisely because the subject is, like the rest of us, ordinary, and therefore deeply important'. www.textclassics.com.au
