Full Bore : A chance encounter in an auction house is the jumping-off point for William McInnes’ inimitable take on our sport-obsessed nation, Australian popular culture and the artefacts and memorabilia that both make us cringe with recognition and laugh with warm affection. His trademark humour and anecdotes litter this collection, making it a true delight. These are truly Aussie stories: about us, and about the things - and the people - in our lives.
William McInnes is one of Australia's most popular writers, delighting readers with his memoirs A Man's Got To Have A Hobby and That'd Be Right, his novels Cricket Kings, The Laughing Clowns and The Birdwatcher, and his insight into Australian life, The Making Of Modern Australia. In 2011, with his wife Sarah Watt, he co-wrote Worse Things Happen At Sea, which was named the best non-fiction title in the ABIA and the Indie Awards in 2012. In 2014, he wrote Holidays, his unique perspective on the Australian obsession with taking a hard-earned break. Also an award-winning actor, William won an AFI Award for Best Actor for his role in the film Unfinished Sky and two Logies. He received critical acclaim for his leading role in the film Look Both Ways and more recently starred in the ABC series The Time of Our Lives and Hello Birdie.
