    'Christina Stead (1902-83) is regarded worldwide as one of Australia's greatest novelists. The New Yorker called her "the most extraordinary woman novelist produced by the English-speaking race since Virginia Woolf". This is the first volume to provide an overview of Stead criticism, including pioneering 'classic' essays and critical literature from the 1980s and '90s by a range of Australian, North American and English critics.'
