“Sod the wine, I want to suck on the writing. This man White is an instinctive writer, bloody rare to find one who actually pulls it off, as in still gets a meaning across with concision. Sharp arbitrage of speed and risk, closest thing I can think of to Cicero’s ‘motus continuum animi.’

Probably takes a drink or two to connect like that: he literally paints his senses on the page.”

A Year In The Life Of Grange, the beautiful big book I've been working on with photographer Milton Wordley, who is the publisher, is finally coming off the press at Finsbury Green in Adelaide.  Whew.  That's my birth vintage above, thrusting its bonnie chest out over the Big Apple. Sally Marden was text editor, John Nowland the designer. Watch DRINKSTER for release details! These photographs copyright Milton Wordley



Oh, wow! HUGE congratulations to you and Milton!

Look forward to it as I know it will be the true story, and possibly not quite the one Pennies would like to have sanitised it to.
