Photo of Sydney Writers Walk in Australia

The Writers Walk in Sydney has gold plaques set into the pavement around Circular Quay in Sydney, commemorating writers with a link to Australia. Some of the writers are foreign writers who just visited, but Clive James is a home-grown talent, known for his broadcasting career as well as his written works. Each plaque includes a quote from one of the writer's works, together with a short biography. Other writers represented there include Barry Humphries (best known for Edna Everage), Faith Bandler (who wrote a biogaphy of her father who was taken to Australia by slave traders in 1883), and Mark Twain (who visited on a lecture tour in 1895, and wrote about the Melbourne Cup among other things).
