About the Author

Paul Kelly is recognised as one of the most significant singer/songwriters in the country. As well as issuing an enduring body of work both solo and with his bands, including The Dots, The Coloured Girls and The Messengers, Kelly has written film scores (Lantana and Jindabyne), and produced albums for and written songs with some of Australia and New Zealand's finest artists. He was inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame in 1997 and had two songs included in the Australasian Performing Rights Association's (APRA) 2001 list of the Top 30 Australian songs of all time -- 'To Her Door' and 'Treaty' (written with Yothu Yindi). His hits also include 'Dumb Things' and the classic 'From Little Things Big Things Grow' (with Kev Carmody). His most recent album was Stolen Apples.

Paul Kelly lives in St Kilda, Melbourne.

Format: Hardcover
A memoir based on thoughts arising from the songs from the A-Z shows that usually span four nights of Paul's songs,starting night one with the A songs onwards,and finishing on night four with the Z song.
And like the title of the book (as well of one of the songs from the book) suggests,it's a bit of everything thrown in to make one unique memoir.
You don't even have to be a Paul Kelly fan to enjoy this book,or even know about the man and his songs,because the lyrics to all of Paul's songs that are mentioned are printed in the book,as the recalling and updating of his thoughts roll along (but don't worry you can also get the CD of Paul singing these songs as well,if you want to).
And if you're not a fan of Paul's after digesting this book,then you must be a harsh food (for thought) critic.
My compliments to the chef.
Loved it 'till the last drop.

As good a storyteller on the printed page as he is a lyricist in song
Check out some of the books he has read too

Not a cookbook! 1 Dec. 2011
By Jeff in SF - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Mr. Kelly's memoir is an extension of his songwriting, and every bit as enjoyable. Perhaps more so! Nah...scratch that. The book and the songs are two sides of the same gold coin that is Paul Kelly.

The book is a wonderful blend of personal, cultural, historical, and spiritual narratives spread across 100 chapters, each based on one of Mr. Kelly's songs and sorted from A-Z. Occasionally a chapter will describe how a song was written, but more often the song is used as a starting point for Mr. Kelly to write about something even more meaningful. There's a lot to digest. It's quite an accomplished work!

If you're already a fan, the book will further confirm your appreciation of Mr. Kelly's talents.

If you're not quite sure, you just love great writing, or you've "heard something" about Mr. Kelly, get the book and the A-Z CD set, with all the songs from the book. Your only regret will be that you waited so long to discover one of the masters of the songwriting (and book writing) form.

And Paul is a chronicler of out times ( especially but not just) in the Antipodies. Great fusing of poetry and art

A truly great read 23 Oct. 2012
By Latitudes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Witty and charming this book is simultaneously conversation and tale. I had owned it it hard copy for an age never quite got around to reading it and spontaneously downloaded the ebook format to take on around the world trip . This was a great move as Mr Kelly proved to be a perfect traveling companion and the kindle format meant i could bookmark all the literary and musical references I wanted to pursue when I got home. Mr Kelly has lived an interesting life indeed and been to some dark places his references to drugs and the drug scene are part of his story but what dominates this book are the musings on life Love country family literature music and history of an exceptionally talented erudite man. I have recommended this book to my friends, my 72 yo mother who is not familiar with Mr Kelly 's music and to all my family .A great read.
