about

Do you remember finishing your last Year 12 exam and wondering what to do next? Do you remember waiting for your results and being stuck in limbo? Do you remember going to gigs, forming a band, getting bottles thrown at you by skinheads, making a bomb and getting arrested? Do you remember hitchhiking to Mildura to see the love of your life, but ending up in a caravan park by yourself on New Year’s Eve?

You don’t? What? Did all this only happen to Dave O’Neil?

That’s what this book is about – the summer in which Dave finished school and waited ten weeks to find out whether he’d make it into uni or have to get that trade his dad kept banging on about. The Summer of ’82 is the hilarious and heartfelt story of a boy becoming a man in suburban Australia.

Dave O’Neil is one of our most loved comedians. He has been performing stand-up for over twenty-five years, has been part of some of Australia’s most successful FM radio teams, and is a regular on our TV screens, where he holds the honour of having the most guest appearances on ABC’s iconic Spicks and Specks (over fifty!). He is also a successful writer, columnist and actor. The Summer of ’82 is his fifth book.
