AbstractHistoryArchive Description

"Thomas Keneally's reputation as a storyteller, established in the 1960s, has been cemented by a series of publications - fiction, memoir and social comment - that has brought him international fame and national esteem. Remarkable for the power of his narrative, Keneally is irrepressible in the diversity of his interests and the intensity of his commitment to bringing the truth to his readers. As a generous and enthusiastic contributor to books and book culture, this collection of three essays: biographical, critical and celebratory - and an account of the Library's acquisition of Keneally's papers - is a fitting tribute to one of Australia's most engaging writers." - Back cover
