Australian writers from Henry Lawson onwards praise, blame and generally celebrate the demon drink.
Alcohol, usually beer, is an integral part of Australian culture. It can develop or ruin friendships, create farcical situations, breed or shatter illusions. In this affectionate collection of short stories, journalism and verse, Jim Haynes has created a dossier of drink, a literature of libation. Some of the material is uproariously slapstick, some poignant - but it all celebrates this well-known expression of the Aussie character.
