Women and Children is the personal novel about kinship and justice from one of the most loved and clear-eyed storytellers, Tony Birch. 

With tender yet forthright prose, he unravels the trauma of violence and the power of family in 1960s Fitzroy, writing ‘convincingly on power and the blinding nature of its corruptive forces’ (Sydney Morning Herald).
