Dave talks with with the talented travel and lifestyle writer Kevin Moloney – author of a new biography title called The Last Australian Childhood.
The Last Australian Childhood is a heartfelt collection of stories by Kevin Moloney about growing up as a typical boy in suburban Melbourne in the 1960s. Each childhood story is written in a different voice to reflect the author’s age when it is set, and with innocence, naivety and humour, engages the reader in a family life that was typical of the time—simple and uncomplicated. The deeply affectionate memoir has nostalgic stories that the majority of Australians can relate to, including baby boomers and their children. Written in a contemporary style, the vignettes also present the reader with an insight into strong values, an appreciation of family life, and a questioning look at the world through the eyes of a growing child in Australia.
