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 coverCanberra:Friends of the National Library of AustraliaNational Library of Australia,2006
