Off The Reading Pile

This week I finished Absent without Leave by Paul Livingston.

It’s a memoir style book about the author’s father and his acquaintances as they survived Tobruk and New Guinea in The Second World War.

Funny and familiar, it gives an insight into the ordinary blokes who signed up, as well as what life was like for those who stayed at home in Sydney.

Recommended.

And yes, it’s THAT Paul Livingston.
