Dorothy Hewett

Dorothy Hewett (1923–2002) was an Australian poet, novelist, and playwright. She produced three novels – Bobbin Up (1959), Neap Tide (1999), and The Toucher (1993) – twelve poetry collections, thirteen plays, and the first volume of her autobiography, Wild Card (1990). Hewett’s writing was strongly informed by her experiences in working-class Perth and Sydney. A long-term supporter of the Communist party, Hewett often challenged the sexual, religious, and political norms of her time.
