Join bestselling storyteller William McInnes as he offers his own take on our colourful and colloquial way with words. From the simpler times of childhood to today’s testing (and unprecedented!) times, or when we’re wasting time, enjoying sporting times or hitting the big time, Australians have a turn of phrase for every situation. Our love of plain speaking communicates the essence of the thing to our mates, to those in the know – and to those who should know better.

Part memoir, part manifesto, this warm, witty, poignant and laugh-out-loud funny collection will have you thinking about what you say, how you say it and what that really says about us as a nation.

‘A mix of memoir, observation and discourse, delivered in the seemingly off-hand manner of a backyard semiotician’ Saturday Age, Non-fiction Pick of the Week
