    1. With more than hints of autobiographical elements, Bill Leak paints some great depictions of growing up in Sydney; first acid trip, discovering a love for art, first real friends, which act as a fascinating prelude to a much more grown up novel tackling adult themes, and an exploration of what it is to be a bloke.

    2. I liked the characters a lot. The main character was extremely likable, even though he was an alcoholic/drug abuser/womanizer/arrogant ass. I liked that the author was able to make this guy likable. Plus he had some interesting prose.
