Snippet 11: 2011 ‘books of the year’

Bite Your Tongue has been noted as one of 2011 ‘books of the year’ in Australian Book Review, December 2011 – January 2012 No. 337, p.29.

Paul Hetherington writes:

‘Francesca Rendle-Short’s Bite Your Tongue (Spinifex), a thoroughly engaging and original combination of fiction and personal memoir, takes the reader into the world of an Australian morals campaigner and book burner in the 1960s and 1970s. It is also a tender, unflinching, and sometimes quixotic family story.’
