Thank God someone else did this stuff. I feel as if Clive was writing a lot of my life as well.Published 6 months ago by Rushy in Tas
A delightful story of a wonderful period in Australia. So many delightful details of an Australian boy's life.
Clive's style is like no other. I'll miss him when he goes.
