Let me take you back four and a half decades, and tell you about one of the most popular books of the late 1970s, a family saga said in Australia, called The Thorn Birds.
But if you happened to miss the book, The Thorn Birds was also a hugely popular TV miniseries in the early 1980s .
The author of The Thorn Birds was Australian-n-born Colleen McCullough.
Just 4 years after the TV miniseries, I first met Colleen McCullough when she wrote a novella called The Ladies of MIasslonghi.
And I was as enthralled as I’m sure you’re about to be by Colleen McCullough’s Witt and Good humor.
So here now from 1987, Colleen McCullough
Colleen McCullough died in 2015. She was 77.
