Summary
Dressed in borrowed platform shoes and a cape, carrying her possessions in a plastic bag, the seventeen year-old Catherine throws over the traces, rejecting her family and her schooling, to move in with her lover Marco. According to the law then in force, she is under age, and the police will soon be at their door, the couple flees to Belgium. Determined to live as a writer, Catherine spends her days absorbed in her work, not realising it will be thirteen years before her first book is published. She returns to France with Marco, but after a time, her dedication, and the physical toll of his work as a labourer, cause their relationship to break down. Catherine migrates to Western Australia, where her father had been born, only to fall into an abusive relationship more constricting, and much more threatening, than the one she has just left. Stepping Out is a cry of rage against the oppression of family life
