Jock Serong, Mark Smith and Nail A. White posed the question: what would happen if a group of Australia's finest writers were invited to let their minds go walking through the Paul Kelly songbook? The writers responded with tales of forbidden love, with the ghosts that inhibit St Kilda and the 'special treatment' of the Noongar people; with the dumb things they did when they crossed the Nullarbor, and how a simple song could bind a father and daughter forever. Contributors include well-known musicians, award-winning novelists, crime writers, children's author and more including Robbie Arnott, Alice Bishop, Zoe Bradley, Sam Carmody, Jake Cashion, Lorin Clarke, Claire G. Coleman, Sarah Drummond, Laura Elvery, Kirsten Krauth, Julia Lawrinson, Matt Neal, Bram Presser, MIrandi Riwoe, Tim Rogers, Angela Savage, Jock Serong, Mark Smith, Neil A. White, Gina Williams and Michelle Wright. Like Paul Kelly's song, these stories will take you anywhere, and everywhere, and they will keep coming back to you like a cork on the ride.
