Gerard Windsor is a renowned provocateur on the Australian cultural scene. The author of six books ranging from sharply pointed stories to revealing memoirs, Windsor is also known for his incisive essays and acerbic reviews. This stimulating, protean collection spans twenty-five years of his writing career, assembling a remarkable cross-section of Windsor's stories, essays and promenades. Always eloquent, often tender, at times brutally arresting, Windsor entertains us with his own preoccupations- the business of writing, Irish-Australia, fathers and sons, the irrepressible body and, memorably, the women who act as muses to his madness.
