Summary
This is the definitive biography of one of Australia's most celebrated and controversial writers. A member of the communist party from an early age, Frank Hardy's first secretly published novel Power Without Glory was the subject of an infamous criminal libel case. Hardy continued to challenge political and social issues with his writing until shortly before his death in 1994. Jenny Hocking includes material from interviews with surviving Hardy family members and never-before-published archival documents that shed new light on one of the most important Australian writers of the twentieth century
