By: Barry Heard (472/35710)

Following Well Done, Those Men, his much-loved, deeply moving account of life as a Vietnam veteran, comes a vivid memoir 0from Barry Heard that reaches right into the heart of his experiences as a boy and a young man in Australia during the 1950s and 1960s.

Capturing the detail of a lost world of country and suburban life in Australia – a world of matinees, country dances, and manual dunnies – Barry Heard delivers his memories with unwavering honesty and condour.
