Nikki Gemmell, mega-selling author of The Bride Stripped Bare and With My Body, pens a weekly column in The Weekend Australian magazine, offering up thoughts on subjects as diverse as motherhood after 40, the end of a close friendship, MONA, connecting with nature, the necessity of tweezers, meeting the Queen, oral sex, homecoming, kindness, celibacy within a relationship, and opting out of modern technology.

Famous for her lyrical honesty and for saying those things other women think but dare not say, this collection of Nikki’s first year of columns will offer up thought-provoking and fascinating fodder for debate. There are also three brand new exclusive essays.

        Comments about Honestly:

        A great little book to dip into as each column reprinted from The Australian newspaper since she returned to Australia, takes 3 pages. She is a wonderful writer with the ability to touch your innermost feelings especially from the female point of view.

        'Gemmell certainly knows how to be controversial' - Daily Telegraph

        Nikki Gemmell

        Nikki Gemmell has written four novels, Shiver, Cleave, Lovesong, The Bride Stripped Bare and The Book Of Rapture, and one non-fiction book, Pleasure: An Almanac for the Heart. Her work has been internationally critically acclaimed and translated into many languages.

        In France she's been described as a female Jack Kerouac, in Australia as one of the most original and engaging authors of her generation and in the US as one of the few truly original voices to emerge in a long time.

        The French literary review "Lire" has included her in a list of what it calls the fifty most important writers in the world - the ones it believes will have a significant influence on the literature of the 21st century. The criteria for selection included a very individual voice and unmistakeable style, as well as an original choice of subject. Nikki Gemmell was selected along with such novelists as Rick Moody, Zadie Smith, Jonathan Safran Froer, Rohinton Mistry, Tim Winton, Colum McCann, Michel Faber and Hari Kunzru among others.

        Born in Wollongong, Australia, she now lives in London.
