Oz history…unauthorised, hilarious and unmissable.

November 22, 2016

First came “Girt”, as in girt by sea. Now,  from the  irreverent David Hunt, comes the second skewering. An even more  frivolous, searching history of the later years of our sunburnt country.

“Girt” would have seemed to have been untoppable. WRONG. In  “True Girt: The Unauthorised History of Australia. Volume 2” Mr Hunt has excelled himself with a 430-page follow-up.

I can do no better than repeat the adjectives that grace  the tome’s  introductory page and  back cover.

“Astounding, gruesome and frequently hilarious. Hilarious and insightful. A sneaky, sometimes shocking peek under the dirty rug of Australian history”.
