This is a roller-coaster ride through the history and present of popular music – from The Monkees, The Rolling Stones, Nana Mouskouri and Neil Diamond to Cat Power, Antony and the Johnsons, Franz Ferdinand and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and covering such Australian mainstays as Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Mark Seymour, Paul Kelly and theCountdown spectacular.

 Robert Forster was a Go-Between and now has an acclaimed solo career. But in recent times he has established himself as one of the fi nest music critics in the business. This book gathers that writing into an entertaining whole and also includes several new pieces: Forster outlines the 10 Rules of Rock and Roll, reflects on the influence of The Velvet Underground and movingly remembers his partner in The Go-Betweens, Grant McLennan.

Cloudstreet 25th Anniversary
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Cloudstreet, Tim Winton’s sprawling, comic epic about luck and love, fortitude and forgiveness, and the magic of the everyday. However it may never have been published had it not been for the stranger who chased after Tim with the manuscript he’d left it on a bus in Rome. Since it was first published by McPhee Gribble on 1 April 1991 Tim Winton’s award-winning novel has been reimagined as a successful play, a major TV mini-series and now an opera.
