'Long recognised as one of Australia's greatest novelists, Henry Handel Richardson reveals her impressive mastery of the short story in The Adventures of Cuffy Mahony. The devastating feelings of loss experienced by a small boy on his mother's death, the innocence and sensuality of childhood, the growing pains of adolescence, the conflicts of Victorian matrimony, the acceptance of imminent death - these are some of the themes developed by Richardson in this memorable collection.'
