This portrait of Sydney describes a city surrounded by myth. The author outlines Sydney's development from penal colony to metropolis, the precarious sense of economic uncertainty, the underlying crime and bigotry and other changes in Sydney society.

Book Description:

Sydney is Jan Morris's fascinating guide to the history, people and geography of Sydney, elegantly written with the skill and knowledge of Britain's greatest living travel writer.

About the Author:

Jan Morris was born in 1926 of a Welsh father and an English mother, and when she is not travelling she lives with her partner Elizabeth Morris in the top left-hand corner of Wales, between the mountains and the sea. Her books include Coronation Everest, Venice, The Pax Britannica Trilogy (Heaven's Command, Pax Britannica, and Farewell the Trumpets), and Conundrum. She is also the author of six books about cities and countries, two autobiographical books, several volumes of collected travel essays and, more recently, the unclassifiable Trieste and the Meaning of Nowhere. A Writer's World, a collection of her travel writing and reportage from over five decades, was published in 2003. Hav, her novel, was published in a new and expanded form in 2006 and was shortlisted for the Booker Prize and the Arthur C. Clarke Award. Her most recent book, Contact!, about the people she encountered on her many travels, was published in 2009.
