About the Author

Authors Bio, not available


'The only lasting fame for any of the rest of us will reside in the fact that we once knew her.' -- Clive James '[A] brilliant biography.' Australian Women's Weekly '...a compassionate understanding of St John's development and eventual deterioration. This biography enriches our appreciation of St John's four novels, and Trinca is a thorough detective but not a judge.' Good Reading 'Moving, frustrating, fascinating: Madeleine is a wonderful book. One thinks St John might have appreciated its elegance, at least. Though she would have hated it, of course; which is to say Trinca has told her story scrupulously, and well.' -- Delia Falconer Weekend Australian 'Expertly researched and fair in its portrayal...[Trinca's prose] is able to masterfully conjure the affluence of 1950s Sydney, its lonely housewives and lost migrants, as well as the shabby chic of 60s London and its bohemian share houses, head with casual sex and marijuana.' Readings Monthly '[Madeleine] isn't merely a history of a singular writer, it is also a trenchant interrogation of a period and a country.' The Monthly 'a rich and moving account of a difficult life redeemed by art.' Independent
