Christina Stead by Hazel Rowley

A beautiful new edition of Hazel Rowley’s compelling biography of one of Australia’s most important writers, Christina Stead.

This new edition of Hazel Rowley’s highly acclaimed biography of Christina Stead brings to life one of the most important literary figures of her age. Christina Stead left Australia in 1928, aged twenty-six, for Europe, not to return to Australia until she was seventy-two.
