Author(s): HARTIN, MURRAY
Murrary 'Muz' Hartin has collated the best of his heart-warming and hilarious yarns and ripper poems for everyone to enjoy in Fair Crack of the Whip, a collection of totally Aussie, character-filled stories told with a mega-watt lightning bolt of energy. His poems have long been a source of entertainment for people young and old and from all walks of life. His hilarious yarn Turbulence, about his late, great mate Billy Hayes is arguably the most popular Aussie poem in the post-Paterson era while the haunting Rain From Nowhere, an empathic insight into the life of a struggling farmer, was described in TIME Magazine as 'A celebration of resilience and hope, it is as moving a piece of Australian verse as has been published in decades'. Murray Hartin's rhyming style of verse is directly influenced by the poems of Banjo Paterson and his Moree Primary School teacher Paul Lawler. Plus a stack of crazy mates and a heap of wonderful characters who provide the inspiration for his verse. Muz - he'll make you laugh, he'll make you cry and he'll give you a great big taste of Australia.
