About the Author

Authors Bio, not available


'Brenda Niall works up an engaging and fascinating portrait, seen through Mannix's involvement in key political and religious controversies. For readers interested in the political and cultural life of Australia during the first half of the 20th century, Niall's highly readable biography will reward handsomely.' Books & Publishing 'Brenda Niall's central challenge was to uncover the personal face of Mannix from his public speeches...She does this modestly and penetratingly, raising questions and looking for consistencies and surprises.' Catholic News 'This is the best life of Mannix we have, superior to other attempts...Writing from inside the Melbourne Catholic experience, Brenda Niall shows how people's affection for Mannix muted their criticisms of him-even if they knew better. This is one of the significant strengths of a rich book.' Global Pulse 'I should say that I expected to take my time over this biography, as I usually do, reading a chapter every other day. But not so, I could not put it down.' ANZ LitLovers 'For my money, Brenda Niall's Mannix is the most wise, shrewd and elegant biography yet produced of this complex and beguiling man. Niall's irresistible prose strengthens the candour of this fine book.' Age 'Calmly magisterial...Niall gives a sense of Mannix's greatness and of why we can still be awed by him.' Australian 'With characteristic insight, sensitivity, and tact, Niall confirms that Daniel Mannix is a major, if elusive, figure in the modern history of Australia, Ireland, and the Catholic Church...a balanced and convincing account of Mannix's life and times, neither hagiography nor its opposite.' Australian Book Review 'An extraordinary man and an extraordinary book.' Weekly Times 'Among living Australian biographers, only Philip Ayres matches Brenda Niall for painstaking research serving narratives at once spirited and judicious...Dr Niall ignores nothing.' Spectator 'A biography should not keep you from your chores or have you up past the bedtime to which you've become accustomed. That is what thrillers and detective yarns are for...Brenda Niall's wonderful telling of the life of Daniel Mannix has broken that mould...This book is the work of a master of the art of biography...Gripping.' Irish Echo 'Brenda Niall, the distinguished biographer of the novelist Martin Boyd and author of a swag of other books, has written a fond and fluent life of Mannix that captures the crispness and the passion, the humour and the enigma of the man who meddled with politics like a master magician.' Sydney Review of Books 'Brenda Niall is that kind of writer who remains throughout the book both a master storyteller completely in control of the wealth of material she uncovers and an unassuming presence whose skill and gift create a work of sheer craftsmanship. This is a book rich in the political intrigue and nasty politics of the Catholic Church across Australia, Ireland and the Vatican, but also a portrait of Australian society, culture and politics in the earlier part of the 20th century. To borrow Niall's own words when describing an appearance by Mannix on TV in 1971, this is a bravura performance.' ALS Gold Medal judges' report
