'Connie Sweetheart Robertson was a woman of style and determination. She reached the peak of her profession as a newspaper editor where for over forty years she played a pivotal role in the social life of Australia. Her father, A. G. Stephens, the legendary editor of the Bulletin's Red Page, and the most influential critic during the developmental years of Australian literature, was as much a goad as an inspiration. In this fascinating biography Valerie Lawson charts the turbulent relationship between Connie Robertson and her father, and the imprisoning framework that it set for Connie's own life and career.'
