Item Description: HARDIE GRANT BOOKS, Australia, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 206 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. It s 1957 and Barry has been sent to stay with Nan and Pop during the school holidays while his mum waits for the new baby. Barry is six-and-three-quarters and 22 Miller Street - the last house Pop built on theWest Preston street - proves full of novel experiences: there s going shopping across the Hump at dawn with Nan ( good isn t it, height, she says, advising him you can look at the stars for nothing ); keeping Popcompany in the shed, where he goes for his smoko; sharing a bed with great aunt Bess (whose Anzacs are an indestructible mixture of oats, molassess, wheatgerm and pure will ). Oh, and finding his way to Fairyland. It s time you got to know each other. Nan reached up and took an old golf ball out of a baked-bean can nailed to the doorframe above the gully trap. All right, she said, Now, West Preston fairies are nothing like the English ones. When you find them, do as they tell you. They ll never do you harm. And don t shout - they don t like that. They ll close up their ears if they hear a loud noise. Now, let s see where the ball lands. Ready, set, go! But then Pop dies, and Barry and his Dad can t find the deed to the house. Developers Snaithe and Sharky are circling and Bracky Boy the Bodgie is threatening the whole neighbourhood. Bookseller Inventory # AA79781742703718

Item Description: Connor Court Publishing, Australia, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 210 x 148 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Lessons in Humility is the bizarre story of Barry Dickins life as a teacher. He gained his Diploma Of Education at The Melbourne State College forty years ago although he failed Classroom Management. He has taught Drama and Creative Literature to cherubs at a primary school and prayer-composition at a secondary college. The recollection unfolds at the point of doom but cheerfully expands when the author experiences enlightenment when he is put in with Grade Ones forever. Barry Dickins writing has been called The defeat of the desperate by the bizarre which means of course that his stage characters are inevitably overcome by not themselves but their surroundings. Join the catastrophic but noble hunt for meaning as our indefatigable community-loving teacher collides with life head-on. Nietzsche once wrote that only with laughter do we slay and never was that epithet truer for a willing servant of education who not only clashes with bureaucracies but can t comprehend society either. What he is brilliant at is never teaching but the forgotten art of listening. Children adore to be carefully heard and practising that fact is what gets him through Hell in one piece. The fantastic and fatal daily hurts and contradictions are faithfully recorded here by a writer who loves poor people so well he knows what lollies they ve knocked off. Many essays have been composed and published upon teaching in the 200 years of the strap. Many are marvellous but this is true. You too will feel as you have held class at The Boil Street Special School in Sickening Road. The author learns the timely lesson in modesty at the rickety helm of teaching chaos. It s not that his kids are stupid but that he is arrogant. He teaches poorly because he listens worse. It is only when he surrenders his portrait of himself as an artist to the wheelie bin of life that he finally learns that teaching is to do with others and not vanity. Vanity is interesting but it will never get the soul a Roadworthy Certificate. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781922168009
