Naked Truth by Graeme Blundell
Book DescriptionThe Naked Truth is the very personal story of Graeme Blundell - Australia's first sex icon (by chance), a founder of the Melbourne theatre groups La Mama and Playbox, and now an acclaimed writer and journalist. From his childhood in Melbourne's working-class outer suburbs Graeme passionately followed his dreams to become a central part of Australian popular culture. The hit movie Alvin Purple made him Australia's first permissive pin-up, and he became a symbol of the early seventies. Actor, director, producer, biographer, critic and journalist, Blundell established theatre companies and was there when they closed, watched the film industry through its many renaissances, and television as it became an addictive digital environment. In The Naked Truth Blundell writes about Australian life in the '40s, '50s and on with the insight of someone who was always part of the action.
