On the first Sunday of our summer-reading program, Griffith Review shines a spotlight on Mirandi Riwoe’s ‘Gold mountain woman’, published this year in Griffith Review 61: Who We Are.

Set predominately in North Queensland during the gold rush of the 1870s, this stunning piece of short fiction is an early excerpt from Riwoe’s next title, On Gold Mountain, which is scheduled for publication with UQP in 2020.
