Tara Moss : The Fictional Woman

Best selling author Tara Moss has published her first non-fiction book : The Fictional Woman. Tara is pictured here at the launch (centre) with Julia Baird and Anne Summers (check out Anne's superb website by clicking on the link at the left).

"In the accessible style of Caitlin Moran's HOW TO BE A WOMAN comes bestselling author Tara Moss's first exciting non-fiction book - a fascinating mix of memoir and social comment. Tara Moss has worn many labels in her time, including 'author', 'model', 'gold-digger', 'commentator', 'inspiration', 'dumb blonde', 'feminist' and 'mother', among many others. Now, in her first work of non-fiction, she blends memoir and social analysis to examine the common fictions about women. She traces key moments in her life - from small-town tomboy in Canada, to international fashion model in the 90s, to bestselling author taking a polygraph test in 2002 to prove she writes her own work"
