Did You Know?
In Beyond the Rock, a biography of Joan Lindsay, book editor Sandra Forbes is quoted as saying, "Did I think the story was true? We did talk about this. But the truth for Joan was different to the rest of us. She was never straightforward about it. I think I decided in the end that [Picnic at Hanging Rock] was a great work of the imagination. I see it as a book of place; a painterly book that captures the atmosphere of the Australian bush." See more
