Beatrice Davis always knew that someone would write a book about her. This formidable woman was Australia’s most acclaimed book editor. An individual born before her time, she was also the first person to have this role in Australia. It was a job she grabbed by the horns and made her own. A Certain Style was first published in 2001. Davis wasn’t alive to read the finished work but it is heartening to see that this won a National Biography Award upon publication. A Certain Style is a fitting and colourful literary work by a fellow book editor. It has now been re-released with some changes and a new introduction, which will ensure that a new generation of readers know about Davis’s finery.
