Publisher's Summary

Ginger Mick has fallen amongst the ANZACS of Gallipoli - but not before entreating his mate Bill to take care of his sweetheart, Rose. Bill sets out with a local minister to 'rescue' Rose from a life of moral and material poverty, unbeknownst to his wife Doreen (or so he thinks!). The adventure unfolds with the humour, larrikinism, Aussie colloquialisms and pathos characteristic of C.J. Dennis.

This verse novel continues the audiobook collection of the works of this celebrated Australian poet, along with other titles including The Songs of a Sentimental Bloke, Doreen and The Moods of Ginger Mick.

Narrated by Denis Daly and Sarah Bacaller.
