FIONA KIDMAN was born in 1940. For Ian, and our family. ALL THE SUMMER MONTHS, my mother carried water from the river up to the garden. She has worked as a librarian, creative writing teacher, radio producer and critic, but primarily as a writer. To date, she has published 17 books, including novels, poetry, non-fiction and a play. Sometimes as she laboured up the slope with a full bucket in each hand, she wondered about piping it up, but Donald always said it would be uneconomic to take it past the cowshed.
