    This book leaves me wanting an ABC series about a middle aged publican in a small town in the late nineteenth century played by Noni Hazelhurst and a temperance crusader Jacki Weaver who opens a coffee palace across the road Make it happen, universe.

    Some books, you can just tell they re a thesis turned into publishable form That s not a criticism especially not coming from me , it s just that published theses read differently to popular history And it just makes me wonder a little how this got into our library collection Because it s on an odd topic and it s not by a big publisher.But anyway I m really glad I stumbled across this book It s a history thematic rather than narrative of women publicans, particularly in Victoria Wright traces the history of Australia and women publicans through legislation, social acceptance, literary portrayal, and political influence I ve got some literary theory issues with that particular chapter, and it s fairly clear that Clare Wright s feminism is not my feminism, but all the same, it s an interesting and thoroughly readable book ...

    There is little to complain about Clare Wright s scholarship, which is impeccable, featuring new and innovative research into the topic of women publicans in Australia a topic that seems unresearched and overlooked, judging from this book , nor her writing style, which is clear, emotive and accessible.However, for all these good points, it s worth noting that Beyond the Ladies Lounge is a academic and scholarly work It s not the most scintillating of reads, probably because of Wright s academic approach to her subject this book is based on her honours thesis Instead of the story of female Australian publicans, it s of an exploration of the concept, and as such, there s a lot of focus on general trends and attitudes The narrative comes alive when Wright discusses specific publicans and their experiences, but these are often lost amidst a sea of...
