"This book surveys a lifetime of activity and striving which spans a period that has seen great changes.  He writes as much about his times as his life because he considers that the way the individual reacts to his times is "part of the human evidence that justifies an autobiography".
Although Boyd thought of himself as an Australian, and he says he spent his happiest and most hopeful years in Australia, he lived most of his adult life in England.  These circumstances have provided him with a recurring theme for his novels, and, as a London Times critic said in an article on Australian literature "No one has analysed so acutely the tension between the old world and the new".  In the present book, Boyd experiences have equipped him to do so."
