All the green year by D. E Charlwood( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The year I remember best from those days is 1929. This was the year I turned fourteen and went into the eighth grade ; the year too that Grandfather McDonald became peculiar and we moved to live with him in his house on the cliffs. It was the end of an era; a year of outlandish happenings ; a time when everything seemed to change for Charlie Reeve, a daydreaming lad growing up in a small town on the Mornington Peninsula. His teacher and dad are giving him a hard time, his neighbour Squid keeps getting him into trouble, and his best mate Johnno is busy seeing a girl -- which leads Charlie to a nasty fight with Big Simmons. First published in 1965, and subsequently made into a popular ABC TV series, All the Green Year is the story of a boy's journey towards adulthood -- not only the humour of it but its drama and pain

Things you get for free by Michael McGirr( Book )

3 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Things you get for Free is a priest's hilarious and heartwarming account of six weeks spent discovering a continent and so much more in the company of his "mum," who is as eccentric and strong-willed as she is utterly endearing. Along the way, Michael reflects on the figures who have shaped his special brand of faith, from Saint Augustine to Hemingway to Michelangelo."--Jacket

Bypass : the story of a road by Michael McGirr( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Hume Highway is the main road between Sydney and Melbourne, the road most travelled, a place so common that few stop to hear the stories it carries. As flabby, unfit and forty-year old Michael McGirr cycles from one end to the other, it becomes a place for both wisdom and comedy. And maybe even a fine romance
