AB Facey

AB (Bert) Facey (1894-1982) began writing his memoirs in later life at  the urging of his wife and children.  They were published as A Fortunate Life in 1981, by Fremantle Arts Centre Press, just nine months before his death, and became an instant best-seller.  Now considered a classic of Australian literature, the book won several major awards in Australia, was adapted for stage and television, and has now sold more than 750,000 copies.  A Fortunate Life is now published under licence by the Penquin Group (Australia).
