I spent yesterday in Geelong.
While I was there I visited Geelong's magnificent new Library and Heritage Centre with my old boss, John Brumby, and former ABC radio host Derek Guille.
Sharing the stage with John felt like the completion of a cycle for me because The Long Haul and Catch and Kill are linked. I only started writing my book because I was asked to by John Brumby; and John only started writing The Long Haul because, after I had a stroke in 2012, I told him I probably wouldn't be able to finish Catch and Kill.
By the way, if you haven't seen the Library and Heritage Centre it looks like a giant deconstructed soccer ball. Very cool.
