Confessions of a New Boy

By Donald Horne

# 2 in Donald Horne Autobiographies


Donald Horne was an ‘enfant terrible’ at Sydney University in the early 1940s. Forty years later, he continued to relish the role of controversialist . . . a vivid portrait of the Australia that made him in the 1940s.

He is sometimes a silly fool, often pretentious, usually difficult to get along with, but always deeply committed to the things of the mind.
