The Australian author Christina Stead (1902-1983) lived in the United States from 1937 to 1946, and her novella, "The Rightangled Creek," which appeared in the collection, The Puzzleheaded Girl (1967), draws on some of her experiences from this time.

In connection with this re-launch of Stead's career, her publishers brought out two of the books on which she had been working since 1948: Dark Places of the Heart in the USA, subsequently as Cotters' England in the UK, and a collection of four novellas, The Puzzleheaded
Girl, in 1967.
