During her lifetime, Elizabeth Jolley established a formidable international reputation for her unique combination of unsentimental realism and original humour. Five Acre Virgin and Other Stories brings together two highly acclaimed collections of Jolley's short fiction in a new edition. Five Acre Virgin and The Travelling Entertainer introduced Jolley as a major Australian talent and she went on to win numerous awards, including the Age Book of the Year Award (three times) and the Miles Franklin Award. Five Acre Virgin and Other Stories includes an insightful foreword by Jolley's long-time agent and friend, Caroline Lurie, and is a great introduction to an unusual and celebrated artist.
