Giant Dwarf and YACK presents

There’s plenty of nostalgia right now for the Australia of the past, but what was it really like?

Join Richard Glover as he launches his new book The Land Before Avocado and takes a journey to an almost unrecognisable Australia: the Australia of his childhood in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s.

Let’s break the news now: they didn’t have avocado.


“Hilarious and horrifying, this is the ultimate intergenerational conversation”Annabel Crabb


About the Book
The new book from the bestselling author of Flesh Wounds. A funny and frank look at the way Australia used to be – and just how far we have come. The Land Before Avocado will make you laugh and cry, be angry and inspired. And leave you wondering how bizarre things were, not so long ago.

Courtyard bar opens at 3pm for a 4pm start. Pop in before the show for a drink and a mingle!

Giant Dwarf is a licensed venue. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
