Book Description

Rediscover the lovable character Lola Bensky with this stylish reissue of Lily Brett's first work of fiction. --This text refers to the mass_market edition.

About the Author

Lily Brett is the internationally acclaimed author of seven novels, four collections of essays, and eight volumes of poetry. She has been the recipient of many literary awards, including France's Prix Medicis tranger in 2014 for her novel Lola Bensky.

Brett was born in Germany in 1946 to two Auschwitz survivors. When Lily was a small child, she and her parents migrated to Australia as refugees. She started her writing career in the 1960s as a journalist for an Australian rock music newspaper. She interviewed scores of musicians, some of whom became legends, such as Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Mick Jagger.

Today Lily Brett lives in New York City with her husband, the painter David Rankin, who created the illustrations for Things Could Be Worse. Brett's work frequently explores the lives of Holocaust survivors and their children, the experiences of modern women, and life in New York City. --This text refers to the mass_market edition.
