Lindy by Moya Henderson( )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of the loss of Azaria Chamberlain and the persecution of her parents combines so many issues that matter - and I believe great opera is about things that matter, like ageing or national liberation. While the Chamberlains were being tried, from 1980 to 1987, we'd all followed another trial - the trial of the media, the law enforcers and law courts, and the responses of the Australian public
