Minds Went Walking: Paul Kelly’s Songs Reimagined

Out of stock
Jock Serong, Mark Smith and Neil A. White posed the question: what would happen if a group of Australia’s finest storytellers were invited to let their minds go walking through the Paul Kelly songbook?
Twenty-one writers responded with tales of forbidden love, with the ghosts that inhabit St Kilda and the ‘special treatment’ of the Noongar people; with the dumb things they did when they crossed the Nullarbor, and how a simple song could bind a father and daughter forever.
Like Paul Kelly’s song, the stories in this anthology will take you anywhere, and everywhere, and they will keep coming back to you like a cork on the tide.
PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
‘I like to see my songs walking around every which way, dressed in different clothes, talking different ways. I wave to them and they wave back.’ Paul Kelly
