Helen Dale has previously worked as a lawyer, political staffer, and advertising copywriter. She became the youngest winner of Australia's Miles Franklin Award with her first novel, The Hand that Signed the Paper, leaving the country shortly after it caused a storm of controversy.
"Helen Dales The Hand that Signed the Paper is a winner of the highest literary awards. Like James Joyces Ulysses, George Orwells Animal Farm. Such writers and books do not always please all. Especially in times like these, it is important they be read and easily available. Wilkinson Publishing is pleased to publish Helen Dale. And with more than 25 years of publishing books we continue to back every book with a money back guarantee." -- Michael Wilkinson "Astonishingly talented ... with the true novelists gift of entering into the imagination of those she is writing about." -- David Marr "This remarkable fi rst novel casts a new perspective on war-time atrocities and is an eloquent statement on what constitutes humanity." -- Robin Lucas, The Bulletin
