Living with Jezebel: A life on Tasmanian and Bass Strait Lightstations by Marlene Levings
Jezebel was tall, white, and made of steel...it only needed a wink of her over-bright eye to have the men running.
Living with Jezebel is a true story of life and love in some of the wildest and most isolated places on earth – the lightstations of Bass Strait and Tasmania. Before their automation, Australia’s remote island and onshore lights were manned by lightkeepers and their families. Foul weather, misadventure and supply problems were offset by incredible natural beauty, camaraderie and a unique lifestyle that no longer exists in the modern world. Covering twenty-two years from 1967 to 1989 and touching upon six lightstations and nine lighthouses, Living with Jezebel takes us from the age of kerosene lamps to solar power, providing historical insight as well as a rollicking good yarn of one family’s life of adventure, love, heartbreak and endurance.
