Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The second volume of memoir by New Zealand artist, feminist, and writer Jacqueline Fahey, this book kicks off after her marriage to celebrated psychiatrist Fraser McDonald. As it recounts Fahey's battles against conventional society to shape a life as an artist as well as a wife andnbsp;mother, this narrative describes her experience in New Zealand and Australian mental hospitals and art schools, and hernbsp;friendships with Rita Angus and Eric McCormick.nbsp;Hilarious, opinionated, and fiery, this account is held together by the inimitable voice of a fiercely original and nonconformist storyteller.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 192).
