"Beautifully written, evocative, funny and mesmerising." Barry Humphries In this long-awaited autobiography, Geoffrey Dutton embarks on an honest, controversial and brilliantly entertaining journey through seventy crowded years. A renowned poet, critic, biographer, publisher and editor, Geoffrey Dutton provides an unrivalled, insider's perspective on literary culture from the 1940s to the 1990s. Among the many intimate portraits are those of Yevgeny Yevtushenko, David Campbell, Russell Drysdale, Arthur Boyd, Sidney Nolan, Robert Hughes and Ken Slessor. Here too is the full story of his volatile quarter-century friendship with Patrick White, which ended so bitterly. "A great read, and more - a massively important book for the history of Australian letters. Not a book to be put down." Jeff Doyle, "Canberra Times"
