These nine essays deal with big issues like ageing, sex, death, food and love. And with some other equally absorbing issues like interviewing Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, and everyone who was anyone in the rock and pop worlds for a rock newspaper; moving from Australia to New York - "We all spoke English but not the same English...I tried some alternative pronunciations 'Raice, reace, roice'. Nothing worked."; and coping with a daughter's revelation that she is gay.A constant theme in this book is Brett's new-found passion for exercise. A compulsive eater and dieter all her life, she forged her school bank-book when she was seven to buy biscuits and since then has been on "every diet known to mankind". Now, she has discovered power-walking, weight-lifting and healthy eating and she is as obsessive and preachy about it as any new religious convert.
