Fondly recalled for the award-winning novels Transit of Venus and The Great Fire, Shirley Hazzard (1931-2016) was just as fascinating as her fictional worlds. Drawing on archival materials and interviews, Brigitta Olubas shows us the places of Hazzard's childhood in Depression-era Sydney; her youth in Hong Kong, New Zealand, and London; and her years in 1950s New York, working at the United Nations and The New Yorker. Olubas also chronicles Hazzard's long marriage to the writer Francis Steegmuller and their deep involvement in postwar Naples and Capri.
