david sedaris remembers with some trepidation his early years as a diarist. it makes his transformation into the brilliant literate and humorous writer of today all the more amazing

having had a long and dull exposure to australian history as a child and student, this fresh take on history draws a full canvas of the absurd and follisome antics of early european "discovery" and settlement of terra australis, a true antipodean view. great fun.

I read this story many years ago as part of the series but had not recalled its power nor the pleasing style. it's much more than a way point in the story. it's a masterpiece in its own right.
