Summary
  • The collection contains papers relating to Woolfe's novel Leaning towards infinity: how my mother's apron unfolds into my life which was published by Vintage Australia in 1996. The book was later published in the United States, the United Kingdom and Holland. Leaning towards infinity was written over a period of several years and the papers comprise correspondence with publishers, editors and colleagues; research notes; early ideas, edited drafts and proofs. Her latest book, The secret cure was published in 2003. The novel evolved from a play of the same name, written by Woolfe and first performed in the United States in 1995. There are papers relating to the development of the script and to productions of the play in the United States, New Zealand and Australia.
Biography
  • Sue Woolfe's writing career began when she wrote the textbook Language and literature. The money she earned from this allowed her to set up a film business, which produced some forty documentaries for television. Woolfe moved on to writing film scripts and eventually novels, including Painted woman and Leaning towards infinity: how my mother's apron unfolds into my life, which won the Christina Stead Prize for Fiction in 1996.
