Sydney Morning Herald 'Menzies was a very accomplished writer and the combination of geniality and acerbity is winning.' The Age 'The letters reveal an articulate and sensitive man who took great care in expressing himself through words. Letters not only provides a deeply personal study into Australia's most successful politician, but opens a window onto a world of politics - indeed a way of life - that no longer exists.'
