Pigface News

With several successful books published - humin hopes and The Castle of Andalusia - Pigface Press took on the marketing of three titles where historian and writer Dr Suzanne Dixon (Pigface's partner) is author, editor, or contributor: The Roman Family, Pre-Industrial Women, and Hidden Desires. The histories will appeal to general readers as well as specialists, and the collection of women's writing in Hidden Desires will engage and delight all.

In 2016 the Melbourne firm Australian Scholarly Publishing issued another book of mine, a history/biography called Alias Blind Larry, the mostly true memoir of James Laurence the singing convict. Reviews have been very positive:

A great work of Australian theatre history and a very readable book.
Royal Australian Historical Society Journal

It is both a Jewish story and an Australian story. It has chutzpah. It has humour. I loved the book.
John Levi, Australian Jewish Historical Society Journal

A major achievement in historical scholarship.
Meg Quinlisk, Inside History

More titles are in preparation under the Pigface imprint to further cement our reputation as a specialist "in works that give unique insights into Australia and its history."
