Biography/History

Author Christina Stead was born and educated in Australia, but spent most of her life abroad. Her acknowledged masterpiece is The man who loved children, published in 1940. Despite critical acclaim she did not win a more general following in Australia until the mid-1960s. In 1974 she returned to Australia, making it her home for the first time since 1928. Edith Anderson (originally Edith Handelsman) was also an author. She left America for Berlin in 1947 to join her German husband, Max Schroeder, a poet, political activist and editor-in-chief of Aufbau Press.
