Ian Rockel's bohemian days in the 1960s Wellington are one of many highlights in this book - dreaming away days in the Parliamentary Library, vivid encounters with literary luminaries, hippies who danced in the bath, and a flatmate so short of clothing that on laundry day she had nothing more, so spent drying time as a model for the drawing club.
The young Ian Rockel was on a road punctuated by pitfalls and traumas; it's a tribute to his skills as a memoirist that he recounts his brushes with death, bizarre characters, mental meltdowns and the paranormal with such a wry touch and an entertaining flair.
