The Australian Newspaper - Great article from Michael ! by Rox on 5 March 2008 4:39pm
 
For all the other Aussies out there, you maybe interested to read an article, courtesy of the The Australian newpaper (1/3/08). Experiences penned by Michael whilst over here late last year for the New Europe book signing. I live very close to Margaret River in WA - wish I had known he was here 5 years ago. Hope the link works :)http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story/0,25197,23296277-5012694,00.html
Cheers for now and hope all Palinites are keeping well :)

Tested out the link, but didn't work, maybe this one ?. Otherwise when you reach the home page, search for the article "On the fly" It's definately worth a read, since he writes some wonderful things about each City he visited whilst here and clearly has and states a great fondness for our land girt by sea !!!

I shall never get tired of reading things he writes. This is a hoot.

No, I'll never tire of reading his words either....When I read Michaels books I get distracted by the pictures he paints with words and just think what a brilliant writer he is......

Oh that IS a great article! He mentions the Ian Potter gallery, Missy and I were there when Michael was in town, in fact we went there the same day as we heard Michael's lecture.Wouldn't it have been amazing if we'd bumped into him? Sadly, we didn't,bah.
