Rosalie Ham

Rosalie Ham

Rosalie Ham is a Melbourne based teacher and writer. Her forth novel, The Year of the Farmer, is a drama about love, justice and irrigation. It echoes her previous novels, most notably the best selling The Dressmaker (also a film starring Kate Winslet and Judy Davis), in it's keen eye for the ridiculous, and for the pretensions and prejudices we all share, which means her writing is always entertaining.
