Left Hand Drive
Celebrated political and social commentator Craig McGregor has spent his working life holding a mirror to Australian society. In Left Hand Drive, he takes us on his personal journey, writing about and living amidst some of the most compelling and events of modern times. From meeting his lifelong partner on a legendary ban-the-bomb march in the UK, listening to the unreleased Blonde on Blonde with an 'attentive 'Bob Dylan, and following the twists and turns of Canberra's corridors of power from Whitlam to Gillard, Left Hand Drive sees this two-time Walkey Award winner at full throttle. Combining memoir, social commentary, and musings from his private notebooks, McGregor charts the changing face of the nation while capturing much of what it means to be an Australian.
Craig McGregor was born in Jamberoo, NSW. A writer, journalist and academic, he has written several books on Australian society, books on popular culture, two novels and a collection of short stories. He has won two Walkley Awards for Journalism.
