Author(s): Robert Drewe
From a floury encounter on a baker's work table to the art of sitting backwards on chairs, from budgie training to spontaneous human combustion, this collection showcases the non-fiction writing of one of Australia's best-loved authors. These pieces encompass suburban portraits and coastal living, affectionate nostalgia and the absurdity of the everyday. They are endearing and often hilarious snapshots of Australian life from a master novelist who has turned the column into an artform.
Robert Drewe is the author of numerous short stories, novels, and nonfiction works, including "The Drowner," "Sand," and two memoirs, "Montebello" and The Shark Net." He is the recipient of a Commonwealth Literary Prize and two Walkley Awards for journalism.
