I’d Rather Not, by Robert Skinner

Cover of I'd Rather Not, by Robert Skinner.

It’s a fast, amusing read of 14 contemporary biographical short stories by a young writer living in Melbourne. It has lots of Aussie references and dry humour. Some very funny descriptions and also sweet reflections.

“I imagine this is what old age might feel like if you’re lucky and you’ve managed to live well – connecting aches and pains to fondly remembered events; trading stories with your closest friends, feeling the sun on your face, the rumble of the stereo, pottering around the house for a while and finally, out to lunch” – Robert Skinner
