THAT'D BE RIGHT A Fairly True History of Modern Australia

by | Read by William McInnes

Contemporary Culture • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

William McInnes is a popular Australian film and stage actor. He has written a highly entertaining and enlightening history of modern Australia that is told through his own life story and observations. Even better, he expertly narrates this charming tale. Australia's last 30 years are examined through McInnes's funny and sometimes-eccentric parents, political elections, sports, and everyday events. McInnes nails various Australian dialects and a surprisingly good American accent.He gives just the right delivery to nicknames of yesteryear, which, along with personal descriptions, are certainly NOT politically correct. In a moving epilogue, McInnes's statement of his love for his country and his observation that there are a number of different Australias conclude this gem.
