A sardonic commentary on sexual relations and war, and a stinging critique of late-capitalist dissolution. As potent now as when it was first published in 1948. On the cusp of World War II, a New York businessman cares only about moneymaking and seduction. That is, until he meets Barbara.

Christina Stead (1902-1983) was an Australian-born novelist and short-story writer, acclaimed for her satirical wit and penetrating psychological characterizations. She lived in the US for many years, teaching at New York University in 1943 and 1944, and working as a Hollywood screenwriter in the 1940s. She returned to Australia only late in life. Her fourth work, The Man Who Loved Children, has been hailed as a ‘masterpiece’ by Jonathan Franzen, among others. Stead is considered one of the most influential Australian authors of the twentieth century.

A sardonic commentary on sexual relations and war. As potent now as when it was first published in 1948, it highlights the corruption and cravenness of our late-capitalist mentality

Jonathan Franzen is one of many high-profile admirers of Stead's work

With almost twenty works published, Christina Stead remains one of the most influential and highly acclaimed Australian authors of the twentieth century

Throughout her long career Stead explored themes of feminism, capitalism and patriarchy
