Amazon Editorial Review

The four Australians featured in this book--Barry Humphries, Clive James, Germaine Greer, and Robert Hughes--are all writers and performers who decided to leave their native land in the late 1950s or early 1960s and to pursue their brilliant careers abroad. Ian Britain's profiles of their careers concentrate on the reasons for their expatriatism and consider what aspects of their Australian identity they have retained. His is the first detailed study of this generation of Australian expatriates, and richly combines elements of biography, cultural criticism and social history.
