Painting a sweeping portrait of the man who gave Australians the signature account of their own history, this record chronicles Clarks friendships with author Patrick White and artist Sidney Nolan; details his urgent and dynamic marriage, ripped apart at times by Clarks affairs; and reveals his eccentricities from his writing letters to his dead parents to his flirting with Catholicism despite his doubts.
