213 pages. To know we killed her together. I willed it, he took the blame, but we did it together. One day he'll look me full in the face and he'll sat it. He'll say: You know why it happened. Yes, I'll say, I know. The air will be noise enough, we won't need more words, but he'll say a few because I am a child. We did it because I know the secret. I am the secret.If Leaning Towards Infinity explored the relationship between mothers and daughters and the pursuit of mathematics, Painted Woman gives us the tight and tangled knot binding a father and daughter, and the pursuit of art. Death and art, violence and love, possession and yearning; this is the story of the emergence of a woman artist, because of and despite all.First published in 1989, Painted Woman has achieved wide critical acclaim, including being set for some university courses. It has also had modest word of mouth success, which we can expand with this new Vintage edition.'A stunning and utterly original book - extraordinary, beautiful writing, like a bright light glancing and flashing across a canvas ...'Kate Grenville'Dazzling ... seething ... truly splendid.'Robert Dessaix'Dazzling and disturbing ... deliciously persuasive ... intellectually rigorous, emotionally dangerous ...' Australian Book Review'An intense, unremitting good read ... a tour de force ...'Susan Hampton'Sue Woolfe writes witty, comic, elegant, noticing prose that is a pleasure to read and savour ... [Hers is] an individual, powerful and important ... voice.'John Hanrahan'Who is Sue Woolfe and why does she have the power to do strange things to my mind, heart and very marrow? Woolfe's power and utter compassion .. is a shattering achievement. Her command of a dazzling palette of characters, drama, style and pure poetry is awesome.
