1 Drama H. G. Kippax , single work
1 4 y separately published work icon The Voice of the Thunderer : Journalism of H. G. Kippax H. G. Kippax , Harry Payne Heseltine (editor), Canberra : Pandanus Books , 2006 Z1275436 2006 selected work prose This fascinating collection of reporting and comment by H. G. Kippax offers a detailed eye-witness picture of Australia and the world over 40 years. Kippax wrote for the Sydney Morning Herald from 1938 to 1983... and became best known as a fine theatre and drama critic. His Editorials from the Herald from the late 1950s to the early 80s covered subjects as diverse as city planning, censorship, the Sydney Opera House, the Melbourne Cup and Anzac Day. The Voice of the Thunderer highlights both the breadth of Kippax's interests and the felicity of his prose style - always lucid and well-informed; plain-spoken, pungent, evocative by turns, as his subjects required. It reveals him as one of Australia's most versatile and distinguished print journalists. (Backcover)
