Paul Kelly is a uniquely gifted storyteller.  For thirty years he has written songs of uncommon directness about everything from love and land rights to cricket and cooking.  'Before Too Long', 'To Her Door', 'Leaps And Bounds', 'Don't Start Me Talking', 'Dumb Things', 'From Little Things Big Things Grow', 'How To Make Gravy' – his songs connect generations of listeners across the country.

Now Kelly has written the memoir everyone hoped he would.  How to Make Gravy mirrors the structure of his legendary A to Z shows, where he performs around a hundred of his songs alphabetically over four nights.  Taking the lyrics of those songs as starting points in this book, he tells stories of his life – the highs and lows of performing, the art of songwriting, being on the road with the band, tales of his childhood, family, friends and fellow musicians.  All illuminate Kelly's wide sources of inspiration, offering an unequalled portrait of the creative mind.

Playful and honest, insightful and intimate, How to Make Gravy is an irresistible reflection on both the big and little things in life.

Kelly's specially recorded versions of the A to Z songs, stripped back to their essentials as solo or duo performances, are available digitally and in a companion CB boxed set that included a 64-pages booklet of photographs.
