review 1: Laugh out loud read. I love William McInnes, his style of writing always tickles my funny bone, yet he has a sensitivity to his writing that can also bring a tear to my eye. Took me back in time, being a fellow Queenslander and growing up in a big Labour voting family.

Funny and insightful. Really enjoyed it. A light read with some different viewpoints.
Another laconic & enjoyable memoir from a very fine actor & apparently decent man.
Another good read by McInnes - books all Australians should read.
