Fishing in the Styx by Ruth Park

Born in New Zealand, Ruth Park came to Australia to continue her work as a journalist, newly married to D'Arcy Niland. Determined to earn their living as writers, they submitted story outlines to radio stations, idea for articles to newspapers and accepted whatever freelance jobs came their way. The Harp in the South, Park's first novel, was published in 1948 and set her on the path to becoming one of Australia's most loved authors.

Fishing in the Styx, the second volume of Ruth Park's autobiography is the tender portrait of her partnership with D'Arcy Niland in life and work. They were two talented, volatile people who shared dreams, disappointments and triumphs. Ruth Park's life is rich in experience and achievement, and her work has given pleasure to generations of readers.
