Christina Stead by Hazel Rowley

Book Description

This new edition of Hazel Rowley's highly acclaimed biography of Christina Stead brings to life one of the most important literary figures of her age. Christina Stead left Australia in 1928, aged twenty-six, for Europe, not to return to Australia until she was seventy-two. An intensely private person, Stead lived a life that was stormy, eccentric and brave. Stead's fiction was large and passionate, original and challenging, as was her life. Hazel Rowley's compelling biography is a vigorous, penetrating and sympathetic chronicle of Stead's life and times.

Richard Wright by Hazel Rowley Richard Wright, Paperback (April 2008)

Consistently an outsider - a child of the fundamentalist South, a self-taught intellectual, a black man married to a white woman - Richard Wright nonetheless became the unparalleled voice of his time. This title chronicles his journey from a sharecropper's shack in Mississippi to international renown as a writer and outspoken critic of racism.

Through original interviews and access to new primary sources, Hazel Rowley portrays them up close.
