Product description

Review

'Not since singer Marianne Faithfull published her bestselling, no-holds barred biographyhas a high profile woman’s memoir had the power to move us to laughter and tears as Butterfly on a Pin, the remarkable memoir of Australian designer Alannah Hill. Butterfly on a Pin is empowering, entertaining, and insightful. It resonates with readers both familiar and not with Alannah’s fashion career, dealing with bigger subjects such as family, estrangement, self-reinvention, and the limitlessness of the imagination.'
(Jack Cameron Stanton Better Reading 2018-05-18)

'The book (Butterfly On A Pin) is like a multi-layered blanket of stream of consciousness, enveloping you in its vivid tales and gallery of characters. At times it feels as if you’re in a scene from Charles Dickens with urchins aplenty and unspeakable mendacity behind every door; only this is not fiction, it’s incredibly real.'

 
(Juliet Rieden The Australian Woman's Weekly 2018-05-01)

‘a beautifully written book’
(Richard Glover ABC Radio Sydney 2018-05-08)

'Hill's raw intelligence and "dark absurd, slightly berserk sense of humour" (a trait she attributes to her mother) blend in prose that chops from free-rangingly florid, to astonishingly simple, beautiful and poetic...It makes for a ripping, inspirational yarn, this story she ached so long to tell.'

 
(Janice Breen Burns The Age 2018-05-19)

'Alannah Hill’s memoir is like her fashion creations —layered, compelling and memorable.'
(Megan Miller The Herald Sun 2018-05-12)

'Raw and real and funny and sad – I could not put this book down' – Jane Kennedy

 
(Jane Kennedy 2018-02-21)
