Michael Keon's first job was as messenger-boy to Keith Murdoch on the Melbourne "Herald". Here he developed relationships with politicians, as well as key war-time artists and writers. As part of the Heide group he has recollections of Sid Nolan, Albert Tucker, Joy Hester, Alister Kershaw and John and Sunday Reed. Keon went to China in 1946 where he became the confidant of Chou En-Lai as well as his adversary Chang Kai-Shek. Later, Keon worked for the United Nations in Italy and in the Philippines. This book takes an autobiographical look at Keon's life to highlight the cultural conflicts in Australia, and Australia's changing identity. Michael Keon is the author of "The Durian Tree" and is the author of several critical articles for "Angry Penguins", "Comment" and "Art in Australia".
