Editorial Reviews

Review

“In her rich vision of an alternate life for Elizabeth… Grenville offers a potentially myth-busting version of a turbulent time."―Booklist starred review

"Historical comeuppance is on order in Kate Grenville’s A Room Made of Leaves…White-hot…[An] impressively angry book."―Wall Street Journal

"Grenville invites the reader to reflect on the complex relationship between truth and falsehood, history and fiction…[A] stunning literary achievement."―Kirsten Tranter, Guardian

"There is no doubt Grenville is one of our greatest writers."―Sunday Mail

Kate Grenville is a literary alchemist, turning the leaden shadow of the historical Elizabeth Macarthur into a luminescent, golden woman for our times. Intelligent, compassionate, strategic and dead sexy, Grenville’s Macarthur is an unforgettable character who makes us question everything we thought we knew about our colonial past. A polished gem of a novel by a writer who is as brave as she is insightful. I simply loved it."―Clare Wright, author of You Daughters of Freedom

"Giving voice to the countless generations of women who were prevented from telling their true stories…Compelling."―Herald-Sun

"Vividly rendered, warmly sympathetic, daring in speculative breadth: a full-length portrait in oils of a woman known to most of us only in profile miniature…If Grenville’s novel is inspired by provocation, it unfolds as a feeling, organic story."―The Australian

"Grenville so convincingly creates Elizabeth’s voice it is easy to forget her opening warning: 'Do not believe too quickly!'...Grenville’s Elizabeth stays with you."―Conversation

"‘Memorable…Macarthur comes to vivid life…A gorgeously tactile sense of the Australian bush."―Mercury

Kate Grenville (kategrenville.com) was born in Sydney, Australia. She's published eight books of fiction, including the multiple prize-winners 'The Secret River', 'The Lieutenant', 'The Idea of Perfection', and 'Lilian's Story'. She's also published three books about the writing process that are classic texts for Creative Writing classes, and a memoir about the research and writing of 'The Secret River'.

Grenville writes about Australia, but her themes are universal: love, violence, and survival. Her characters are often inspired by real historical characters: her own nineteenth century convict ancestor, an early Australian settler; a bag-lady on the streets of 1950s Sydney who quotes Shakespeare for a living; a soldier in the Sydney of 1788 who shares an extraordinary friendship of tenderness and respect with a young Aboriginal girl.

Grenville's international prizes include the Orange Award, the Commonwealth Writers' Prize, and a shortlisting for the Man Booker Prize. Her books have been published all over the world and translated into many languages, and two have been made into feature films.
