Description - Full Bore by William McInnes

A chance encounter in an auction house is the jumping-off point for William's inimitable take on our sport-obsessed nation, Australian popular culture and the artefacts and memorabilia that both make us cringe with recognition and laugh with warm affection. His trademark humour and anecdotes litter this collection, making it a true delight.

These are truly Aussie stories: about us, and about the things - and the people - in our lives.
