— Review of Killing Time : Short Stories from the Long Road Home Jimmy Barnes , 2020 selected work short story

'In the final pages of his third autobiographical book in four years, Jimmy Barnes breaks the fourth wall to let the reader in on his experience of writing the previous 400 pages. “The act of writing used to be a painful process for me,” he notes. “Trawling through the wreckage that was my childhood caused me immense pain, but I had to do it. I needed to look at it all in the cold, clear light of day, so that I could let it all go.” Then his thoughts are interrupted by the voice of his five-year-old grandson, Dylan, whose sense of innocence and wonder is infectious, and whose life experience is untainted by the misery that Barnes went through in the 1960s.'  (Introduction)

1 Middle Eight Andrew McMillen , 2019 single work column
— Appears in: The Weekend Australian , 29 June 2019; (p. 12)

'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)
