Christina Stead (17 July 1902-31 March 1983) was an Australian novelist and short-story writer acclaimed for her satirical wit and psychological penetration. Stead was a committed Marxist, but never a member of the Communist Party. Although her birth and death were both in Sydney, New South Wales, Stead lived many years abroad in England and the United States.
