              Hang on a Minute Mate (Paperback)

              By Crump, Barry

              Sam Cash, yarn-spinning vagabond, takes young Jack Lilburn under his wing on a roundabout journey. The pair drift from one job to another - forestry, horse-breaking, fencing, mustering, farming - but of equal importance to the story are the tall tales and unusual qualities of Sam... Cash himself, hard-case humorist and jack-of-all-trades.

              This selection of poems covers the period 1972 to 2002. This beautifully elegant volume excludes the cartoon element, focusing on Leunig's brilliant texts, with all their absurdity, hilarity, poignancy and joyfulness. Michael Leunig pokes fun at human folly and pretentiousness, d...eplores the idiocy of war, and revels in the redeeming power of love.
