Man Who Loved Children/Stead, Christi/Paper/0312280440/S022-A
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.
Christina Stead was the author of over a dozen works of fiction and the recipient of the Patrick White Prize. She was born in Australia in 1902 and died in 1983.
