Picador, Pan Macmillan, Sydney - first edition, 2001. Hardcover, 7½" x 4½", with dust jacket. AS NEW book in AS NEW unclipped dust jacket. Black cloth-bound boards with white type to spine. The author Hilary McPhee, along with Diana Gribble, founded McPhee Gribble Publishers in Australia in 1975, a business acquired by Penguin Books fourteen years later. Among other things, this is the story of a small independent company which was a seminal force in local publishing, built on a unique way of working which at once mirrored its times and changed them; how it thrived and how it fell. Amonst new writers they introduced were Helen Garner, Tim Winton, & Drusilla Medjeska. A fascinating view of a growing publishing house and the difficulties faced.
