Barry Dickins


Barry Dickins is an award-winning Australian author, playwright and artist. From his beginnings drawing cartoons for the Age to his most recent books for Hardie Grant – Unparalleled Sorrow and Barry and the Fairies Of Miller Street – Barry has always shown an intense curiosity about people and what makes them tick.

Barry writes with inimitable wit, humour and lyricism – and has the ability to find the ridiculous and jubilant amid pain.
