Description:

Who is "The Lounge Lizard"? And who is "A Courtier"?
"The Lounge Lizard" is a former Sydney investigative journalist, and "A Courtier" is a well-known Australian artist.
It is not through modesty that the author and illustrator are hiding behind their chosen pseudonyms. Both are Members of a Sydney Club that traditionally prefers to stay out of the public spotlight. As loyal club-members, they have decided to abide by that tradition.
