'Biddulph...presents here an often-brilliant gathering of writings on the exposed male self... There is Leo Schofield's fine piece on his at-times Christian Brothers schooling, Peter Carey's masterful tale of an abortion and fatherhood...and Bob Ellis's utterly heartbreaking story of his mother's passing. There is some great writing here for everyone.' Matt Condon, journalist and author of The Pillow Fight and The Trout Opera.
