Ladies’ Legs and Lemonade

This autobiography of Kim Bonython (who?), Ladies’ Legs and Lemonade, was unearthed in a second-hand bookshop in country Victoria, Australia.

This wonderful specimen was published in 1979 when, apparently, no-one in the publishing world thought it tasteless to have a bookcover of a white man in a suit ostentatiously displaying his wealth, whilst standing jovially next to a female manikin semi-clad in risque attire.

Anyone care for a display of institutionalised gender power imbalance?  And just in time for International Women’s Day.

This is a site about books and about tea, and how we should read more books and drink more tea. Sometimes, it’s hard to know what books to read and what tea to drink. This is where I can help out.

Tell me what you think!
