Summary
"David Walsh - the creator of Mona in Hobart - is both a giant and an enigma in the Australian art world. A multi-millionaire who made his money gambling, David has turned a wild vision into a unique reality; he is in turns controversial, mysterious and idolised. 'A bone of fact' is his utterly unconventional and absorbing memoir..."--Inside front cover
