ABSTRACT
The article focuses on several books written by Christina Stead. Some of the books presented in the article are — "The Man Who Loved Children", "House of All Nations" and "The Salzburg Tales." The common and lowly fate of most books is shabby gentility. They are more or less accepted, amiably received — nearly everyone is kind about effort and genial in the face of a completed task — and then they are set aside, misplaced, quietly and firmly left out, utterly forgotten, as the bleak phrase has it.
