A New Biography by Joyce Morgan

We are very excited that Joyce Morgan’s new von Arnim biography The Countess from Kiribilli is coming out on 2 July.

Joyce Morgan is a former arts editor of the Sydney Morning Herald. She is the author of Martin Sharp: His life and times, which was long-listed for the 2018 Stella Prize, and Journeys on the Silk Road, about the discovery of the world’s oldest printed book. Joyce has written on arts and culture for more than three decades and has worked as a journalist in London, Hong Kong and Sydney. She is a Getty arts journalism fellow and Huntington Library fellow. British-born, she has travelled widely and lives in Sydney.

You can order the book directly from Allen & Unwin. However, Booktopia is currently running a 20% pre-order discount if you want to secure your copy.

It’s wonderful to see how von Arnim’s colourful life continues to inspire interest.
