Christine Courtenay – Bryce Courtenay- Story Teller
Do you have a Bryce Courtenay book in your house?
Bryce started writing novels aged 52: twenty-one books in twenty-three years. Most of them became number-one bestsellers, and his debut novel The Power of One went on to sell millions of copies.
He never wrote an autobiography, but to commemorate the tenth anniversary of Bryce’s passing, Bryce Courtenay: Storyteller is coming to tell his story, written by his wife Christine Courtenay.
Christine draws on reflections from Bryce’s close friends, colleagues and family, as well as insights from media coverage over decades. Known for his determination, creativity and application of ‘bum glue’, he was a man who made a huge impact on the cultural life of his adopted country, first as a legendary advertising creative and later as a bestselling author.
