Author Nigel Gray to Visit Dongara Library

Nigel Gray has published over 90 books suited to adults, young adults and children.  For adults he has written books of non-fiction, plays, story collections, and novels. Nigel Gray has won numerous awards, and many honours in Australia, Germany, France, Holland, the UK, and the United States.

His most recent novel ‘HIS STORY – A NOVEL MEMOIR – THE LIFE AND TIMES OF DICK O’TOOLE’ is a blend of memoir, faction, fiction, and radical social and political history that is funny, tragic, playful, iconoclastic, and satirical. The revelations are profound, the humour is black, and the style is a breeze.

Dick O’Toole is a rogue floundering on the assault course of life. His attempts at making the world a better place and his ‘doggedness’ in defending the underdog invariably lead to anguish and failure, but our protagonist comes up smelling of roses. Readers are advised to fasten their seat belts: they’re in for a wild ride.

Please RSVP the Library by calling 9927 1859.
