I enjoyed this light-hearted glimpse of the culture of working-class 1950's Australia. The characters are caricatures rather than stereotypes, especially the Italian narrator, so don't expect realism. Instead, prepare for something short, easy to read, and funny.

Surprisingly, there are a few moments of depth addressing racism and anti-immigrant bigotry interwoven with the book's humor, and they're appropriately tasteful. ( )

A classic Australian book about a newly arrived Italian migrant, particularly his 'battles' with language, culture and customs, and how he finds a great welcome to his new country. A humourous read. ( )

A neutral observer might find Nino's friends a pretty dreary bunch, talented mainly at drinking beer with their shoes off - but they're his friends after all.

This is a work of fiction, and is dedicated to all Australians who work with their hands, in gratitude for their very real contributions to my education. Anyone who thinks he recognises himself in these pages, probably does. N.C.

Chapter One: Who the hell's Nino Culotta? That's what you asked yourself when you first picked up this book, wasn't it? My father had me baptised Giovanni - John - well Giovannino is like Johnny, and Nino is an easier way of saying it. Or a lazier way, if you like.
