Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Im working on a series of stories on the Kimberley - where I lived on a number of extremely remote Aboriginal communities, and I am also considering a book on recent experiences in Berlin.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
I'm a classical modernist I guess! Lou Reed, Ted Hughes, Sylvia Plath, Nick Cave, Burroughs, Dylan, Bukowski, Hunter, Leonard Cohen, Waits.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
Patrick Wilckens biography of Claude Levi-Strauss. Don Watsons book on Paul Keating, Victor Sorensens biog of JFK.
