My Accidental Career by Brenda Niall

Award-winning author Brenda Niall’s engaging account of her remarkable life presents a fascinating history spanning nine decades: from her childhood in affluent Kew in the 1930s, her university days and travels in Ireland, her academic career at a time when marriage was the exception for young women- to her becoming one of Australia’s finest biographers. This is a story of quiet confidence, some good fortune and some times of sorrow. But most of all it’s a story of brilliant creative achievement.
