Review quote

"What makes this earnest, scholarly work especially valuable is that Turner provided input before his death, in typically guarded yet public-spirited fashion, helping his biographer piece together the life of the intensely private man he had always been . . . Buckrich does surprisingly well. She presents us with a fascinating picture of a writer." --"The Australian"show more
