Described by Barry Humphries as a "cubist self-portrait", this autobiography revisits his childhood, his adolescence, his love-hate relationship with Australia and his adventures of the heart and of the stage. In this memoir, his various fascinations are explored: painting, travel, marriage and divorce, and his friendships with comedians, artists and writers such as Spike Milligan, Dudley Moore, Peter Cook, Patrick White, Sidney Nolan, John Betjeman, Stephen Spender and many others. A master of comic writing, he tells us of his pivileged youth in suburban Melbourne. With a disarming candour that he already regrets, he describes his hectic artistic and romantic career in Australia, England and America and he shares with us hilarious behind-the-scenes details of this life as creator and personal manager of Les Patterson, Sandy Stone and Dame Edna Everage.
