AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When a clairvoyant tells Gretel Killeen that she has only days to live, she is forced to look back on all the most important things in her life. High on her list is the man with whom she has shared her longest relationship, Jimmy. Theirs is a warts and all friendship - perhaps far more honest than any marriage, and Gretel takes us into the heart of their unconventional love with hilarity, wisdom and warmth.

Readers who read Gretel's first volume of autobiography, The Night My Bum Dropped, will recall Jimmy fondly - and those who didn't should prepare to meet an unbelievable and unforgettable man. But this Jimmy is to be believed, as this is a much more honest account of the private life behind the very public woman.' (Penguin Books Australia website)
