Loving Daughters

Author(s): Olga Masters

General Fiction

With this, her first novel, Olga Masters was immediately hailed for her powerful and original fiction. Loving Daughters is a brilliant, unsentimental portrait of two sisters - one artistic and restless, the other houseproud, her father's favourite. The entry of an eligible young man into their lives creates a disturbing triangle of desire and rivalry.
Loving Daughters was highly commended for the National Book Council Award (then Australia's key literary award) and was also published in the US by Norton and in France by Rivages.
'What Olga Masters offers us is a rare thing - a true comedy of manners, Australian style.' The Australian
'Subtly passionate ... brilliantly detailed, with a sly and often comical eroticism.' New York Times Book Review
'A gracefully shifting novel ... reminiscent of Jane Austen and an absolute pleasure to read.'  National Times
