"Joy Hooton - an acknowledged authority on Australian autobiography and co-author of The Oxford Companion to Australian Literature - has compiled an absorbing anthology of some of our finest autobiographical writings from the convict era to the present day. She illustrates the strengths of this literary form, which has loomed large in Australian writing since European settlement."--Book jacket.
