George Johnston - A Biography

Author(s): Garry Kinnane

Autobiography and Biography

"The life of George Johnston, author of the best-selling My Brother Jack,was in many ways symbolic of Australian post-war cultural life. He was a complex character, dogged by feelings of mediocrity, betrayal and failure that he ultimately transformed though the writing of his brilliant trilogy My Brother Jack, Clean Straw for Nothingand A Cartload of Clay.

In this award-winning biography, Garry Kinnane examines the process by which Johnston selected people, places and events for this creative transformation. In doing so, he reveals the reality that lay behind the glamorous outer facade of the life of Johnston and his wife, the writer Charmian Clift."
