Memoirs, Places & peoples: general & pictorial works

This story of a writer finding her voice, struggling to have a room of her own, is the story of ALL women finding space for themselves against the 'very important men' in their lives. It's the story of every woman's life.

Dissolve is a deeply personal, profoundly intimate reflection on love and female creativity in a man's world, and what happens when it all collides. Having lived through the humiliation and bewildering complexity of a time of failure, Nikki Gemmell eventually resurfaced. Decades later she has written a meditation on women's lives and creative desires.

This is a conversation. A conversation with the beautiful young women of her teenage daughter's generation, and of course with men. With husbands and male artists.

Dissolve is a hopeful, exhilarating book about women finding their voice.

Nikki Gemmell is the bestselling author of 13 novels and four works of non-fiction. Her books have been translated into 22 languages. She was born in Wollongong, New South Wales, and lived in London for many years, but has now returned to Australia. Her distinctive writing has gained her critical acclaim in France, where she's been described as a 'female Jack Kerouac'. The French literary magazine Lire included her in a list of the 50 most important writers in the world - those it believes will have a significant influence on the literature of the 21st century. Gemmell pens a weekly column for The Weekend Australian Magazine and she also writes novels for children. Four of her books - Shiver, Cleave, The Bride Stripped Bare and The Book of Rapture - made the longlist of Favourite Australian Novels as chosen by readers of Australian Book Review.
