  • Ruth Park's life was rich in experience and achievement. Writing was at the core of her being and her work continues to delight new readers. A Fence Around The Cuckoo is a passionate and often funny of the people and places of her early years. An isolated childhood in the rainforests of New Zealand and the bitter years of the Depression exposed her to poverty and injustice before she entered the world of journalism, her marriage to D'Arcy Niland and a new life in Sydney. Fishing In The Styx is a candid portrait of this marriage and industrious literary partnership, but most of all a  heartfelt account of a writing life.
