The Late Great: Christina Stead
As a City of Literature and a country of readers we don’t always serve our writers, past and present, as well as we might. Across 2011, we pay tribute to Australia’s literary heritage, remembering past masters and celebrating their craft. Christina Stead, one of Australia’s most important writers, was a master of satire and wit. Stead wrote 15 novels and several volumes of short stories in her lifetime including the acclaimed The Man Who Loved Children.
