Summary : "I am convinced that tens of thousands of people would bless the day that this book was published, if only they could be exposed to it." JONATHAN FRANZEN The Man Who Loved Children is Christina Stead's masterpiece about family life. Sam and Henny Pollit are a warring husband and wife, he a fully blown narcissist and she spoiled and prone to fits of despair. Their hatred, aggravated by too little money and too many children, lies at the centre of this chilling and brilliantly observed novel about relations between parents and children, husbands and wives. The Man Who Loved Children is acknowledged as a contemporary classic of Australian and international literature.
