Pybus, Cassandra

Cassandra Pybus is one of Australia’s best known and most admired non-fiction writers. Her previous books include Community of Thieves, an account of the last tribal Aborigines of Tasmania; Gross Moral Turpitude, a controversial study of Australia’s first sexual harassment case, which won the Colin Broderick Award for the Best Australian Book in 1993; and White Rajah: A Dynastic Intrigue, an exotic history set in the jungles of Borneo, published to critical acclaim in Australia and the US and Canada. Her latest book, Till Apples Grow on an Orange Tree, is a memoir in fragments. She is also the editor of two essay collections and founding editor of the electronic journal, Australian Humanities Review. As literary critic Brenda Niall has observed, “the authority and clarity of Cassandra Pybus’ voice add memorably to present debates and our sense of the past.” Awarded the Centenary of Federation Medal 2003 for service to Australian society and literature.
