Elisabeth Wynhausen tells the story of an extraordinary inspirational character and reflects on the mysterious quality that is resilience. A humorous, irreverent essay that arrives at contentment and joy.
MUP's new series Little Books on Big Themes pairs leading Australian thinkers and cultural figures with some of the big themes in life. Each author's 10,000-word take on a chosen theme is presented as an eminently collectable hardback.
