An eye for eternity : the life of Manning Clark by Mark McKenna( Book )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark McKenna's biography of this giant of Australia's cultural landscape is informed by his reading of Clark's extensive private letters, journals and diaries - many that have never been read before.

It details an urgent and dynamic marriage, ripped apart at times by Clark's constant need for extramarital romantic love. A son who wrote letters to his dead parents. A historian who placed narrative ahead of facts. A believer who flirted with Catholicism. A controversial public figure who marked slights and criticisms with deeply held grudges
