First published in 1855 and reissued here in the second edition of that year, this two-volume work celebrates the life of the author, wit and clergyman Sydney Smith (1771-1845). A founder of the second Edinburgh Review, Smith is best remembered for his entertaining observations and witticisms. The work comprises a memoir, written by Smith's daughter Saba Holland (1802-66), and a selection of letters, edited by Sarah Austin (1793-1867). Together, the volumes offer private insights into a man who lived much of his life in the public eye. Sharing her father's sense of humour, Holland peppers her memoir in Volume 1 with many of his best jokes, while also emphasising his character as a compassionate clergyman, loving father and dutiful friend. Volume 2 continues with Smith's letters, selected for the light that they shed on his character.

Australia has evolved from a nation of tea drinkers into one of passionate, true-to-Italian-immigrant espresso consumers.

Cafe culture is carved into Sydney's phenomenal harbour topography and colourful neighbourhood character. From bayside to beachfront, bohemian inner-city areas, student zones and leafy residential areas, each suburb has its own distinct flavour and cafes to match. Cafe Life Sydney explores how espresso culture has percolated up from its Italian roots to be an essential part of Australian lifestyle.
