dc.description.abstractThe last institution of old Collingwood, the Collingwood Football Club, is poised to take flight from yuppified terraces in the former industrial suburb, for new headquarters, on the site of what was once John Wren’s motordrome, Olympic Park. Now is a perfect moment in which to read this intriguing story of the one-time patron of Collingwood’s football, politics and gambling — its masculine working-class culture, more or less. Published fifty-one years after Wren’s death, will Griffin’s biography finally allow the ghosts — not of Collingwood, but of its fictional shadow, the Carringbush of Frank Hardy’s "Power Without Glory" (1950) — to rest? Probably not.en
