Summary BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY. AUSTRALIAN. '...a reflective, generous and eloquent book.' - Sydney Morning Herald ' a gracious memoir...' - Weekend Australian 'Michael Kirby writes with great humour and extraordinary warmth...' - Canberra Times '[a] charming and oddly moving collection of autobiographical excursions.' - Saturday Age Michael Kirby is one of Australia's most admired public figures. At a time of spin and obfuscation, he speaks out passionately and straightforwardly on the issues that are important to him. Even those who disagree with him have been moved by the courage required of him to come out as a high-profile gay man, which at times has caused him to be subjected to the most outrageous assaults on his character. This is a collection of reminiscences in which we can discover the private Michael Kirby. It allows the public figure speak in his own voice, without any intermediary.
