Connie Sweetheart

The story of Connie Robertson, published by Heinemann, 1990.

“Sweetheart” was the middle name of Connie Robertson, the daughter of the Sydney literary figure, A.G. Stephens, and the women’s editor of The Sydney Morning Herald from 1936 until 1962. In those days, most female journalists were confined to the women writers’ room and not allowed to cover news stories. Connie’s pages, however, held up a mirror to Sydney society over many decades. The book tells her own story but it is also a social history of a city.
