Summary

Following up his 'musical memoir' 1001 Australian Nights (2011), legendary Australian showman Dave Graney returns to the page with a more autobiographical take on his remarkable life. It's half written by Dave Graney, the consummate performer and half-written by Dave Graney, the mere mortal.The trick is that you're never sure which is which. Coming from blue-collar South Australia, Dave Graney managed to care out a career for himself partly through his life-long commitment to avoiding any work he doesn't want to do. The paradox being that in running from the drudgery, he becomes one of the hardest working musicians, constantly evolving, reinventing, staying one step ahead of himself. And then we looked back, he realised he had nothing else to fall back on.
