As a founder of the Angry Penguins, Max Harris was at the forefront of the modernist movement in Australian poetry. He provides a unique overview of the period of Australian cultural history of which he was part, recalling the ferment in the artistic community as writers, painters, and musicians struggled to find an authentic Australian voice; the uproar surrounding the Ern Malley controversy; and his friendship with Sidney Nolan.
