Publisher Description

"Who the hell's Nino Culotta. That's what you asked yourself when you first picked up this book, wasn't it? Well I'm Nino Culotta. My father baptised me Giovanni - John - well Giovannino is like Johnny, and Nino is an easier way of saying it. Or a lazier way, if you like." Just off the boat from Italy - the north - Nino Culotta arrives in Sydney. He thought he spoke English but he's never heard anything like the language these Australians are speaking. They're a Weird Mob is a hilarious snapshot of the immigrant experience in Menzies-era Australia, by a writer with a brilliant ear for the Australian way with words.
