MUP's new series ""Little Books on Big Themes"" pairs leading Australian thinkers and cultural figures with some of the big themes in life. Each author's 10,000-word take on a chosen theme is presented as an eminently collectible hardback. Australia has always prided itself on its luckiness...In ""On Luck"", Anne Summers thinks on this characteristic, and especially what happens when luck runs out.
