    'After sixty years in the strife-ridden occupation of journalism, David McNicoll shares a sort of index to his life-his movements, his likes and dislikes (both expressed in his customarily blunt fashion), his ups and downs, and, above all,his love affair with journalism. This fascinating collection of pieces from past by-lines and Bulletin columns shows McNicoll at his finest. However, it will be, perhaps, his poetry that is most surprising. Already given a guernsey by Kenneth Slessor for his war poetry, McNicoll also reveals a talent for children's verse.' (Publication summary)
