This collection of Christina Stead's letters spans the life of one of Australia's most illustrious writers, offering a rare insight into the relationships that influenced and sustained her work. They reveal her reflections on the art of literature, the development of her political thought, and the significance of a handful of friendships that would endure throughout her life and career. These letters cover Stead's arrival in England in 1928, as well as her time abroad in Europe and the United States. They also detail her marriage to William Blake, their life in England where they settled in 1953, as well as her brief return to Australia and her final years in England following Blake's death. A Web of Friendship includes Stead's intimate correspondence with influential literary figures such as Stanley Burnshaw, Ettore Rella, Nettie Palmer, Clem Christesen, Elizabeth Harrower and A.D. Hope, and includes an introduction by Hilary McPhee.
