Alan Moorehead: A Rediscovery


In stockAvailability: In stock

Quick Overview



Half-a-century ago, Alan Moorehead was one of Australia's most famous writers. He first made his name as an intrepid and eloquent World War II correspondent, then as the biographer of Montgomery and Churchill. His widely read historical works, fiction and travel writing drew critical and popular acclaim. Books such as African Trilogy, Gallipoli, The Fatal Impact and Darwin and the Beagle were reprinted many times and extensively translated. Yet, in spite of his major contribution to Australian and international history, Moorehead has largely fallen from public view. Ann Moyal's marvellous encapsulation of his life and work is therefore timely. The first of the National Library's new biography series, 'An Australian Life', Moyal brings this passionate writer and his era vividly to life and provides an informed assessment of Moorehead's lasting influence. First published in 2005.
