'The true story of the architect Francis Greenway has all the elements of romantic fiction. Convicted in England for forgery and sentenced to death, he was reprieved and transported in 1810 to the penal colony of New South Wales.
Andrew Mallon has painted a masterly portrait of the artistic genius who designed some of Sydney's most beautiful buildings, showing how his fortunes were shaped both by circumstance and by his own excitable, unpredictable nature.
