'Australia is a lucky country, run mainly by second-rate people who share its luck.'

First published in 1964 The Lucky Country caused a sensation. The book was a wake-up call to an unimaginative nation, an indictment of a country mired in mediocrity and manacled to its past.

I have dozens of Penguin books, dating back to the early 50's, still have "Claudius" etc. They are all important parts of my extensive library. Thanks for being there. Eva Morris
