Ruth Park AM (born 24 August, possibly 1923) is a New Zealand-born author, who has spent most of her life in Australia. She was born in Auckland, and her family later moved to Te Kuiti further south in the North Island of New Zealand, where they lived in isolated areas. Her first novel was The Harp in the South (1948) - a story of Irish slum life in Sydney, which was translated into 10 languages. (Some critics called it a cruel fantasy because as far as they were concerned there were no slums in Sydney.) But Ruth and D'Arcy did live in Sydney slums at Surry Hills. She followed that up with Poor Man's Orange (1949). She also wrote Missus (1985) and other novels, as well as a long-running Australian children's radio show and scripts for film and TV. She created The Muddle-Headed Wombat series of children's books. Her autobiographies are A Fence Around the Cuckoo (1992) and Fishing in the Styx (1993). She also wrote a novel based in New Zealand, One-a-pecker, Two-a-pecker (1957), about gold mining in Otago (later renamed The Frost and The Fire). Park has received awards in Australia and internationally.

'Literati loses a Kiwi giant who called Australia home', Susan Wyndham, SMH 17 December 2010.

"Ruth Park, the author of classic Australian books such as 'The Harp in the South' [http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/6369215] and 'The Muddleheaded Wombat' [http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/5782132], has died in Sydney aged 93.
Park's career as a novelist was launched when she won the inaugural 'Sydney Morning Herald' literary competition in 1946 for her unpublished first novel 'The Harp in the South'. Announced in 'The Herald' under the headline "Woman wins £2000 novel prize", the news caused a scandal among readers shocked by the story of an Irish family set in the slums of Surry Hills and poverty, adolescent sex, wife-beating and murder.

Although the public did not want to believe it, the setting was realistic, based on Parks' observations while living above a shop in Devonshire Street, Surry Hills, with her husband D'Arcy Niland. Born in New Zealand in 19178, Park moved to Sydney in 1942 to take a newspaper job and to marry Niland, a fellow journalist and later author of 'The Shiralee' [http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/5883607]. They raised five children while struggling to live as freelance writers.

Angus & Robertson published 'The Harp in the South' as part of Park's prize, and a British publisher proclaimed it "superb, magnificent". The book was translated into 37 languages. Park became one of Australiua's most-loved and awarded authors. She published eight more novels, including 'Poor Man's Orange' [http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/6370403] and 'Swords and Crowns and Rings' [http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/8531732], which won the Miles Franklin Award in 1977, and two dozen children's books, including 'Playing Beatie Bow' [http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/7565359] and 'The Muddleheaded Wombat', based on her long-running radio serial.

Most of her books remain in print and she was pleased to remove the irritating hyphen from muddleheaded for a 2010 edition of the book, which contains an essay that was her last piece of writing. She kept a connection with 'The Herald' and Fairfax's The National Times, writing journalism and features that brought events of the Depression and earlier history vividly to life.

Apart from stints in London and Norfolk Island and visit to New Zealand, Park mostly lived in Sydney - in a Mosman apartment with harbour views. Robert Sessions, who was her publisher at Penguin, said that Park was one of three older women who had a "huge impact" on him, along with writer Thea Astley and legendary editor Beatrice Davis. All have died. "Thea and Ruth both have huge stature in Australian literature and they have the rare combined talent of strength and humility," he said."
