Overview

Shots by Don Walker

This extraordinary memoir begins with Don Walker's early life in rural Australia and goes up to the late '80s. In mesmerising prose, Walker evokes childhood and youth, wild times in the '70s, life on the road and in Kings Cross, music-making and much more. Shots is a stunningly original book, a set of word pictures - shots - that conjure up the lowlife and backroads of Australia.

‘The book shines with its descriptive sense of place. Shots carries the reader along for the ride … from the bush to Melbourne and Kings Cross and on to Europe.’ —the Age

‘Each sentence is precision-engineered: Walker’s every memory a shot out of a barrel.’ —Big Issue

Shots is … better than good. Most of the time it is brilliant.’ —Australian Book Review

‘A singular, strong and beguiling book..’ —Sydney Morning Herald

Don Walker is one of Australia's leading songwriters - first with Cold Chisel and now as a solo performer and with Tex, Don&Charlie. Shots is his first book.
