A heartbreaking and hilarious collection of stories that explores the precarious balance between self-preservation and external responsibility in art, family, and the world at large.

This was my first introduction to this author. I felt the chapters were inconsistent, some were really interesting and funny, some were not so well written and were more page flippers than page turners. The author is self depricating and realistic as well as insightful about his aboriginal background. He does not assume that he is the only one who has had a difficult upbringing, nor that all his problems are because of his ethnic origin. I will certainly read more by this author and recommend him to others.
