Bex powders. Bogans. Feral Koalas. The immortal pink Lamington, Australia’s contribution to world patisserie. Plastic banknotes. Thongs, Uggs and utes. Not to speak of the Great Barrier Reef, goon and Nellie Melba. One of the world’s most distinguished thinkers and cultural personalities, Dame Edna Everage has inspired generations of Australian artists and icons.
Dame Edna Everage is the world-famous housewife, talk show host, investigative journalist, social anthropologist, chanteuse, satirist, spin doctor—and author.
