Bearded Ladies (1984)

Bearded Ladies, a collection of short stories, was my first book, published in 1984. These are stories about women on the edges of things – women for whom society's idea of what a woman should be doesn't work. They know themselves to be something else altogether. Their beards are invisible – they can pass in the eyes of others as conventional women. But they know that they're something less simple, but more truthful.

Bearded Ladies is published in Australia by University of Queensland Press.  It's now available as a back-to-back edition paired with Dreamhouse
