Their Brilliant Careers

In this book, with the same skill and empathy he has so often displayed in his award-­winning short fiction and nonfiction, Ryan O’Neill gives us the lives of sixteen writers, including RuhtrA himself, who followed this injunction. Sometimes it was to the lasting gain of Australian literature; often it was at great personal cost. These brief, expertly condensed biographies present a unique, fascinating overview of the famous, infamous and forgotten from Australian literature’s last hundred and fifty years.
