Germaine Greer courts controversy with every appearance everywhere, and yet she continues to attract invitations to events of all kinds and in many countries. A few years ago she sold her archives, 150 filing cabinets to Melbourne University for 3 million dollars, the money went to her Gondwana Rainforest Foundation. Elizabeth Kleinhenz has trawled through those archives and interrogated Professor Greer's immense personal and professional files, spoken to people who have known Greer from her school days until now and read every word written by and about her to crack the enigma - in all her glories, frustrations and contradictions. Only to conclude that with Germaine Greer, there is no mask, everything we have seen and read by her add to the challenging, vibrant, hilarious and gifted woman she is.
