Letters to My Daughter: Robert Menzies, Letters, 1955-1975

Heather Henderson

Robert Menzies remains a towering figure in our political and cultural history. This collection of letters written to his only daughter, Heather, is brimful of warmth, love and humour, and provides a fascinating insight into one of our most influential Australians.

‘As prime minister, Menzies strode the stage like a colossus … here he is affectionate paterfamilias, supportive sibling, benevolent uncle.’ 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.’ Herald Sun
