The Birdwatcher by William McInnes

the laughing clowns mcinnes william

Over these few days, he will come to realise that sometimes when you go back to where you came from you find out how much you actually have, and how much you could lose. McInnes has a great capacity for description of ordinary Aussie life, from mid 20th century till 2013. He has nothing, in particular, to be unhappy about and yet he is not enjoying his life. . I was drawn to this book through my respect and admiration for William McInnes and it was more on this basis that I purchased this book. William has recently written a new novel and is working on a documentary about birds. Only criticism is that is a little boring in some parts because he remember so much.

William McInnes: Laughing Clowns (ePUB)

It's about cold outdoor showers and people not quite being complete. The places the people, the events were all very familiar and offered a warm fuzzy feeling. I lived in Redcliffe where the story is set and despite renaming etc it was very much The Peninsula. . He stopped doing what he loved at work long ago, eats too much and is a man without direction. I also found the use of Australian references and slang a bit smothering and then contradicted by the main character getting drive-through hot dogs at every opportunity. Too much detail and almost no lovely moments.

In 2014, he wrote Holidays, his unique perspective on the Australian obsession with taking a hard-earned break. It's possible that the author William McInnes yes, the actor overdoes his writing just a tiny bit sometimes, but saying that, I found myself laughing a lot. In that regard it reminded me a bit of Muriel's Wedding, although the characters in this book were much more morally upright and likeable. McInnes featured in the lead role in 2005 , directed by his wife. Sarah Watt died of cancer in 2011.

The Laughing Clowns by William McInnes

This is the story of Peter Kennedy — a development consultant from Melbourne sent to the Pickersgill Peninsula, just north of Brisbane, to assess some prime real estate the local Showgrounds. Easy to read, mildly touching, amusing and reflective of people and circumstances that most Australians can relate to. Yet something is not quite right, and it started with a dream that smelt of luncheon meat. All he has to do is make his mind up, and listen to the advice that he is given by, of all people, the King of Hot Dogs. Then he creates a warm feel good story along the fathering theme. Even the local bakery is all wagyu beef pies and coconut water, alongside the custard tarts.

Over these few days, he will come to realise that sometimes when you go back to where you came from you find out how much you actually have, and how much you could lose. McInnes has spoken in many of his media appearances about the museum and its work and the importance of democratic values and education.

Actor William McInnes on life after the death of his wife, Sarah Watt

the laughing clowns mcinnes william

For all of us, there are memories and secrets that can change our lives. In 2011, with his wife Sarah Watt he co-wrote Worse Things Happen At Sea, their celebration of family life in words and pictures. I started to enjoy it at Page 218. As a literary text it's a bit plain speaking and rather too many similes and metaphors used, but they are useful for the nostalgia factor. He has a flair for fiction as much as memoirs and non-fiction, as The Laughing Clowns will attest' - The Daily Telegraph.
