Almost every day for 35 years, Arthur Stace spent hours writing a single word - Eternity - on and around the streets of Sydney. Sometimes his mission took him much further afield, to country New South Wales and even to Melbourne.
Stace's identity was a mystery for more than two decades. Then, after his `unmasking' in 1956, he became a reluctant folk hero. By the time he died in 1967, he was a household name and the word Eternity was ingrained in the soul of Sydney. It still is.
In this long-awaited biography, the full story of Arthur Stace's life is told for the first time in vivid and often surprising detail. Drawing upon many original sources, some never before made public, this book will engross anyone who loves a great story. (back cover)
