A funny and sensitive memoir about growing up on the semi-rural outskirts of Brisbane in the 1960s and 1970 and living and working in the Queensland Outback. From there to the opposite end of the spectrum and to urban Japan. Hilarious things happen when the assumptions we make are wrong. Come with me on this crazy journey and expect plenty of belly laughs from this easy read. With short anecdotal chapters, it is the ideal commuting or bedtime read. With few or no phrasal verbs, it is also a great book for readers for whom English is a second language.
