Erin Gough: Legacy Books

In this minisode from FWF 2018 Sydney, Erin Gough talks about the books that shaped her feminism and writing.

Erin’s picks include Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway, Sarah Waters’ Fingersmith, Dorothy Porter’s Monkey’s Mask, Melina Marchetta’s Looking For Alibrandi, and Finding Nevo by Nevo Zisin, as well as anything by Ellen van Neerven ‘whose writing speaks to her female Indigenous experience, to deep-seated racism, to colonisation, and to queerness’.
