Richard Glover’s weekly humour column has been published in the Sydney Morning Herald for over thirty years. He writes regularly for The Washington Post and also presents the top-rating Drive show on ABC radio in Sydney.
Richard Glover’s most recent book is Love, Clancy – a collection of the letters sent home by his dog Clancy to his parents in the bush. Of the book, Julia Baird said: “Unnervingly accurate, always funny, Richard Glover effortlessly inhabits the fine mind of a dog”. He is also author of the bestseller “The Land Before Avocado” – a journey into a lost Australia, the bizarre Australia of the late 60s and early 70s. It’s been described by Hugh Mackay as “warm, wise and very, very funny”. His previous books include “Flesh Wounds – a comic romp for anyone whose family was not what they ordered”, described by the British writer Jeanette Winterson as “Sad, funny, revealing, optimistic and hopeful” and by The Australian as “a breathtaking accomplishment in style and empathy”.
