Works about this Work

An American Introduction : Perfect Readers, Unread Books and Christina Stead's The Man Who Loved Children Fiona Morrison , 2012 single work criticism
— Appears in: Republics of Letters : Literary Communities in Australia 2012; (p. 127-136)
'Fiona Morrison treats the reception history of Christina Stead's once neglected masterpiece The Man Who Loved Children (1940) as a case study in the complex relations between the centres of international literary space and the literary province. This difficult and anomalous book was written by an expatriate Australian about her Australian childhood, but the setting was transferred to America during the Depression years of the 1930s at the behest of her American publisher, Simon & Schuster. ' (Kirkpatrick, Peter and Dixon, Robert: Introduction xv-xvi)
