AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Wild & Woolley: A Publishing Memoir is Wilding's rollicking account of the literary scene in Sydney in the heady bohemian years of the 1970s and 80s, charting the growth, the experiments, and finally Wilding's departure from this innovative small press, against a background of social upheaval and cultural change in Australia. It is peppered with irreverent anecdotes and details - publication of the best-selling manual All About Grass, the purchase of decommissioned panel vans for "urgent book deliveries", accounts of long and boozy book launches - and with vivid portraits of some of the most important literary figures of the time.' (From the publisher's website.)
