Summer Reading Series: Christina Stead

Monday, August 22, 2005

Hazel Rowley tells us about the nearly forgotten work of Christina Stead—a woman whose writing was compared to James Joyce and Leo Tolstoy during her lifetime. Her best known work, The Man Who Loved Children, is a touching, if disturbing, look at family life. Ms. Rowley is the author of Christina Stead: A Biography.
