This extraordinary memoir begins with Don Walker's early life in rural Australia and goes up to the late '80s. In mesmerising prose, Walker evokes childhood and youth, wild times in the '70s, life on the road and in Kings Cross, music-making and much more. Shots is a stunningly original book, a set of word pictures - "shots" - that conjure up the lowlife and backroads of Australia.
Don Walker is one of Australia's leading songwriters - first with Cold Chisel and now as a solo performer and with Tex, Don & Charlie. This is his first book.
