That'd Be Right : A Fairly True History of Modern Australia Paperback / softback


Both funny and insightful That'd Be Right is part memoir, part personal history of Australia over the last thirty years.

It's a biographical trip told through sport, and families and William's own experiences. He weaves in and around the events that have held a fascination for Australia. Some of these events would be considered momentous, some small and personal.

They range from a day at the Melbourne Cup with his mother where too many champagnes and too few winners were picked; a swimming carnival early in the morning after a gloomy and long federal election the night before; watching truly surreal Grand Final moments in a pub with a group of odd and unknown bar companions.

Sailing on a massive yacht during the Sydney Olympics while listening to the conversation of an elderly lady from Texas in the cabin below. William also writes about a night at the cricket with his son, which shows how things can change and oddly come full circle.
