 “Biddulph … presents here an often-brilliant gatherings of writing on the exposed male self … There is Leo Schofield’s fine piece on his at-times Christian Brothers schooling, Peter Carey’s masterful tale of an abortion and fatherhood … and Bob Ellis’s utterly heartbreaking story of his mother’s passing. There is some great writing here for everyone.’ – Matt Condon, journalist and award-winning”
