<span style="line-height: 1.6em;">I jaunted across town to Matty Condon's book launch on Monday night. Three Crooked Kings, a kick arse piece of literary non fiction that's the first real, long horizon view of 1980s Qld I've seen anyone take. I'm glad to see Matt turning his hand to long form journalism/history. He's an amazingly talented writer who seems a little out of favour with the judges of literary competitions. He should have shelves full of glittering prizes and I'm kinda hoping this one carries off all of this years non fic baubles. It deserves too.</span>
Today's Blunty is really just a pimping effort on its behalf. We may even do this one in bookclub later this year. On which front I am sorry to report that tomorrow night I will trapped inside yet another parental commitment. I seem to do nothing but drive from one to the next at the moment.
