In 1838, Englishwoman Elizabeth Gould - wife of celebrated ornithologist, John Gould - made a trailblazing tour of Australia to collect and illustrate our curious birdlife. Inspired by real-life letters and weaving the discovery of some of the country's unique species' with her own personal journey, The Birdman's Wife is an intimate memoir about the struggles and demands of art, the needs of children and what it's like to live with an ambitious and demanding genius.
