The story behind the sails
Author and winner Helen Pitt’s new book reveals the remarkable stories behind Australia’s most iconic building, the Sydney Opera House.
Winner of the 2018 Walkley Book Award, The House reveals new insights into the people involved and the controversy that surrounded the construction of the 20th century’s most recognisable building. With access to diaries, letters, and classified records, as well as her own interviews with people involved in the project, Helen Pitt reveals the intimate back story of the building that turned Sydney into an international city. It is a tale worthy of Shakespeare himself.
