9780312280444: The Man Who Loved Children: A Novel

With an Introduction by Randall Jarrell. Sam and Henny Pollit have too many children, too little money, and too much loathing for each other. As Sam uses the children's adoration to feed his own voracious ego, Henny watches in bleak despair, knowing the bitter reality that lies just below his mad visions. A chilling novel of family life, the relations between parents and children, husbands and wives, The Man Who Loved Children, is acknowledged as a contemporary classic.

From the Back Cover:

Every family lives in an evolving story, told by all its members, inside a landscape of portentous events and characters. Their view of themselves is not shared by people looking from outside in--visitors, and particularly not relatives--for they have to see something pretty humdrum, even if, as in this case, the fecklessness them complain of is extreme.

About the Author:

Christina Stead was the author of over a dozen works of fiction and the recipient of The Patrick White Prize. Her many other works include The Salzburg Tales and Seven Poor Men of Sydney. She was born in Australia in 1902 and died in 1983.
