In On Beauty Susan Johnson explores the role of beauty in our lives, and in her life in particular: Sometimes I think my whole life has been one long search for beauty. I am Australian and as such I should be embarrassed to write a line like that, in a land where one must speak of beauty in whispers. She writes of where her search has taken her, how beauty enters the body like desire, and how beauty is nothing less than life's call to order, life's bid to save it from itself.

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.
