Following on from A Fence around the Cuckoo, this is the second volume of autobiography by one of Australia's best storytellers, Ruth Park, author of The Harp in the South and the Miles Franklin-winning Swords and Crowns and Rings.

Born in New Zealand, Ruth Park came to Australia to continue her work as a journalist, newly married to D'Arcy Niland. Determined to earn their living as writers, they submitted story outlines to radio stations, idea for articles to newspapers and accepted whatever freelance jobs came their way.

The Harp in the South, Park's first novel, was published in 1948 and set her on the path to becoming one of Australia's most loved authors. Fishing in the Styx is the portrait of a partnership, in life and in work, between two talented, volatile people.
