    I once spent about an hour in conversation with Grahame Bond, @ the bar @ The Bondi Pavilion Theatre. That guy was definitely the guy who wrote this book - the energy, humour & curiosity about life is exactly the same. A wonderful writer, composer & performer - one of my favourite live theatre memories is Aunty Jack & Co live @ The Opera House Concert Hall - he is equally as entertaining as a memoirist. Highly recommended.

    A rattling good read. A reminder that being creative comes at a cost.
