BEST AUSTRALIAN DRINKING STORIES
Rum, beer, scotch, wine, beer and more beer. For nearly 250 years, Australian history has been punctuated with stories of booze and boozing. From Cook’s Voyages and the First Fleet to the Rum Rebellion, the mutiny of the 99th Regiment, the soldiers’ riot of 1916, six o’clock closing and beyond, we’ve been a nation that likes a drink. With the eye of the master storyteller that he is, Jim has collected the best yarns, verses, stories and anecdotes of our boozy history.
LIMERICKS & LITTLIES
Greg’s first book is full of rhyming verse, penned by this three-times Australian bush poetry performance champion. The collection features a bunch of limericks and shorter poems that will raise a laugh, a smile… or an eyebrow. If you’re looking for a limerick for your home state or a month of the year then you’ll find it here. With short poems from the serious to the absurd, there’s something for everyone.
