About the Book

To the respective muses of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Arthur Miller, Sid Vicious, Arthur Clarke, Brendan Behan, Mickey Rourke, Kim Basinger, Madonna, Brett Whitely, Janis Joplin, Eugene O’Neill, Dylan Thomas, Jack Kerouac, Bill Clinton, Leonard Cohen and Francis Anstey: PISS OFF!
Ben Wallymacher has always struggled to keep up with Francis. Friends since childhood, their lives diverge as they battle with the big questions — relationships, fathering and the limits of spontaneity — until they are drawn together again by Francis’ elusive daughter, Piaf. This ironic, comic novel flits from the past to the present, weaving a tale of life’s journey with psychodramas, gurus, armed robbery and prison. It’s about an ordinary man trying not to make too much of a wally of himself.
