Review quote

"He succeeds . . . in evoking the manic excitement, the fierce living out of the political in the personal, the necessary jettisoning of two decades of postwar conformity, which fuelled a remarkable phenomenon. Like so many Pram productions, the book enacts a process that subsumes product. It recreates an intoxicating era, giving a potent sense of what it was like to be there, in the eye of the counter-cultural storm of the 1970s." --"Australian Book Review"show more
