AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'We have in Christina Stead a gifted Australian writer whose books are out of print and whose work has never been published in the country of her birth. Living abroad for many years, she has had most of her novels issued in both England and the United States. Her two most recent novels, A Little Tea, A Little Chat and The People with the Dogs, were published in America alone and very few copies have been seen here. This pair, it is true, might not find a big public in Australia, but there are at least four of her books which would certainly be widely read and enjoyed by Australian readers, if only they were readily available—Seven Poor Men of Sydney, The Salzburg Tales, For Love Alone, and The Man Who Loved Children.

    '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.'
