Edited meticulously and with grace by writer and publisher Hilary McPhee, the diaries are a marvelous account of Melbourne’s cultural and artistic life in the 1950s, particularly the sexual escapades of Burstall and his contemporaries, a good decade before the so-called “sexual revolution” of the 1960s. Hilary McPhee discusses the diaries and the era with Graeme Blundell.\n\n\n\nParticipants: Hilary McPhee, Graeme Blundell (facilitator)\nCost: $15/$10 \nBookings: 9250 1988\nDisabled Access: Yes\nHearing Loop : No DTSTAMP:20120518T060000Z DTSTART:20120518T060000Z DTEND:20120518T070000Z END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
