Re-Reading Christina Stead Other events...
A Public Lecture by Louise Adler, CEO and Publisher-in-Chief, Melbourne University Publishing.

In 2010, Melbourne University Publishing (MUP) acquired the rights to a collection of titles by one of Australia’s most outstanding novelists, Christina Stead, including her masterpiece, 'The Man Who Loved Children', and her remarkable novels 'Letty Fox: Her Luck' and 'For Love Alone'.

Christina Stead, who grew up in Sydney but spent much of her life overseas, is renowned for her penetrating psychological characterisations and satirical wit. Amazingly, many of her works were not published in Australia until the 1960s and soon fell out of print, despite the critical praise that 'The Man Who Loved Children', in particular, received internationally.

In this talk Louise Adler will discuss MUP’s decision to bring Christina Stead’s remarkable literary oeuvre to a new audience.
