A Needle in the Heart free pdf A collection of six compellingstories linked by a central issue in the lives of the main characters, the defining incident that shapes their futures: the disappearance of a brother- an illegitimate child born to a young girl- a traumatic court case- a woman caught between the deep friendship of two men- a lost love- a betrayal. They are generally stories about country women, whose children have grown up and moved away to the cities, while they have remained surrounded by tight communities and an enfolding countryside. The central story is of a woman who has a drifting sewing-machine needle in her body. Every time she thinks she has composed her life, she is reminded of something that happened in her past and feels as if the needle is 'passing through her heart'. Fiona Kidman was born in 1940. She has worked as a librarian, creative writing teacher, radio producer and critic, but primarily as a writer. To date she has published 19 books, including novels, poetry, non-fiction and a play. She has been the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships and was created a Dame (DNZM) in 1998 in recognition of her contribution to literature.
