A Man's Got To Have A Hobby
This bestselling book by William McInnes, star of Sea Change, Blue Heelers and the movie Look Both Ways, takes us back to the long summer holidays of the 1960s and 70s, and the last of the baby-boomer childhoods.
William McInnes is a talented writer and a natural storyteller. A tail-end baby boomer, William recalls summer holidays that seemed to go on forever, when he and his mates would walk down to fish in the bay, a time when the Aussie battler stood as the local Labor candidate and looked out for his mates, and a time when the whole family would rush into the lounge room to watch a new commercial on TV. He writes about his father a strong character who talks to the furniture, dances with William's mother in the kitchen, and spends his free time fixing up the house and doing the best for his family. In William s writing you can hear his father speaking, listen to his mother singing, and his sisters and brothers talking in the yard.
This is a book about people who aren't famous but should be. It s about cane toads and families, love and hope and fear, laughter, death and life. Most of all, it is a realistic, down-to-earth book by a man who had a great time growing up. His warmth and humour come through on every page. This Australian memoir tells of a time that will be familiar to many readers and a delight for all.
