'Ahead of meeting songwriter Don Walker for today’s cover story, I finally got around to reading his 2009 memoir Shots, about which I’d heard plenty of good things but for which I had never set aside the time. Its fine reputation is entirely accurate: the book is a hypnotic piece of work unlike anything I’ve read before, thanks to an addictive writing style that favours long, flowing sentences with minimal punctuation. It shouldn’t work, really, but it does, because Walker is not the sort of bloke to waste a word, either on the page or in person.' (Introduction)
