An Unsentimental Bloke
The Life and Work of C.J. DennisBook - 2014
The Sentimental Bloke and Doreen are famous characters in Australian popular culture, but their creator deserves to be better known. C.J. Dennis transformed the larrikin from a street thug into a respectable image of Australian identity, and helped shape the Anzac legend. He was more popular than Banjo Paterson or Henry Lawson ever were.
