Come in Spinner, a collaboration with Florence James, was an immediate sensation when it was first published in an abridged edition in 1951. (The complete edition was published by A&R in the 1980s.)

A cheerful comedy celebrating the lives of small-town Australians. Gubba is preparing to celebrate its centenary and its history as a goldrush town. But there are two factions in Gubba - the wealthy 'woolocracy' with their social pretensions and the ordinary townsfolk who are just after the peaceful life. Pretty young Eden Dutton gets caught up in the feud - her father wants to make the town a centre for tourism and 'picnic races' - but her heart seems to be fighting for the opposite side. Young prospector Greg Millard isn't her father's idea of the right type of bloke, but the Hon. Ralph Tenterden certainly is. And then a surprise discovery brings a change when it was least expected and upsets all the townspeople's plans

In the industrial city of Newcastle, New South Wales, lies a powerful firm that dominates the town. It is here that Dymphna Cusack sets a dramatic tale of family disunion, feminine rivalries, soldiers' lusts and lovers' ecstasies. As the horror of the Second World War comes home to Australia with the attack on Darwin, an up-and-coming steel executive returns to Newcastle. His ambitious wife seeks a way to distance him from his unsuitable family and advance her social standing. His two brothers - a union man and a merchant sailor - are now an embarrassment. The three brothers begin to grow further apart as the demands of the war, family conflict and their different beliefs pull them in separate directions. And Newcastle, and society, is changing fast as well - as women have to work, and American sailors have to party. An unusual and fascinating portrait of urban Australians living with the peril of war, and the passion and heartbreak that can result

Uncertain of herself, vulnerable, Roslyn is a woman who needs people and who needs to feel that people need her. But her husband Rod, an officer in the Australian Navy, is often away at sea, and her daughter, grown up and preoccupied with her studies and her boyfriend, comes only rarely to see her. Imagining slights where perhaps none exist, and feeling herself cold-shouldered by the other naval wives and shunned by the tenants in her Sydney block of flats, Roslyn starts drinking to console herself on her lonely evenings at home, unaware that what is at first only a harmless temporary escape from barren reality will grow into a need, and then into an overpowering obsession
