Left Hand Drive
A Social and Political Memoir
Craig McGregor has spent his working life holding a mirror to Australian society. In Left Hand Drive, he reflects on his personal journey, writing about and living through some of the most compelling and defining events of modern times.
From meeting his lifelong partner on a legendary ban-the-bomb march in the UK, listening to the unreleasedBlonde 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 Walkley 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.
