This is an auction for FISHING IN THE STYX by Ruth Park.

"FISHING IN THE STYX, the second volume of Ruth Park's autobiography, is the tender portrait of her partnership with D'Arcy Niland in life and work. They were two talented, volatile people who shared dreams, disappointments and triumphs."

From Wikipedia:

"Ruth Park (1917-2010) was a New Zealand-born author, who spent most of her life in Australia. Her best known works are the novels The Harp in the South (1948) and Playing Beatie Bow (1980), and the children's radio serial The Muddle-Headed Wombat (1951-1970), which also spawned a book series (1962-1982) . . . Her first novel was The Harp in the South (1948) - a graphic story of Irish slum life in Sydney. Park built on her initial success with the 1949 publication of a follow-up novel titled the Poor Man's Orange. She subsequently wrote Missus (1985), among other novels, and created scripts for film and television. Her autobiographies, A Fence Around the Cuckoo (1992) and Fishing in the Styx (1993), deal with her life in New Zealand and Australia respectively. She also penned a novel set in New Zealand, One-a-pecker, Two-a-pecker (1957), about gold mining in Otago . . . "
