Why Men Are Necessary and More News From Nowhere

By Richard Glover


“Full-on, uncontrollable, laugh-till-you-weep stories. Glover has become the indispensable chronicler of Australian family life.” — Geraldine Brooks

Wickedly funny stories of everyday life, as heard on ABC Radio’s Thank God It’s Friday. Meet the sexy and feisty Jocasta; confront teenage rebellion in the form of a fish called Wanda; do battle with magpies the size of small fighter jets; try to work out which font you use when speaking the language of love; and find out what men really have to offer. In Richard Glover’s stories, the day-to-day becomes vivid, magical and laugh-out-loud funny.

‘Glover is better than Proust. OK, maybe not better, but how often do you find yourself in a cold bath at midnight still chuckling over Proust?’ Debra Adelaide ‘desperately, wickedly funny … Richard Glover has done the miraculous – he’s made ordinary family life extraordinarily entertaining … Go ahead and open a page at random – you’ll laugh out loud.’ — Augusten Burroughs
