AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Tell 'em Nothin', Take 'em Nowhere is Max Cullen's motto, so a memoir about his life was always bound to be enigmatic...

Actor, artist, sometime journalist, erstwhile husband, drinker, Max Cullen is a legend of the Australian arts. Here, the man of famously few words tells the inside story of six decades of working in films and theatre that have shaped Australian culture and consorting with the likes of Patrick White, Brett Whiteley, David Williamson, Robyn Nevin and Cate Blanchett.

The unexpected charm of Cullen's storytelling takes the reader on a wild ride into a fascinating industry with a man who truly is one of a kind.' (Publisher's blurb)
