    Hilarious And Tragic At The Same Time...loved It!

    Can feel myself growing up in the 60s n 70s.....wonderfully funny and sad all rolled into one.. Maybe an example to others to move forward and not be bitter about circumstances.

    Clever and poignant - a good read.

    Richard Glover is an experienced journalist and presenter now working on Australia's ABC network. He is a witty and intelligent presenter and a good author. This story is about his life so far after migrating to Australia, with a special emphasis on his "eccentric" mother and alcoholic father. Well worth the price of admission.

    A fantastic read

    I had no idea what this book was about or who the author was, i had just heard it was a good book. It took a few pages to get the gist of it and then I couldn't put it down. Such a great well written story. Especially of the era.

    Who’s Got the Weirdest Parents?

    Richard Glover’s party game of “Who’s Got the Weirdest Parents?” would bring out some darkly funny stories from everyone but his are high up the ladder of dysfunction. A funny and tragic book about dealing with the people who are positive and negative influences in his life, and trying to come to peace with his parents and his identity by delving into his odd family history. This is not misery porn, his sense of humour and natural optimism shines through. I think the love, stability and support of his wife is such a vital part of this story; without it Richard Glover’s flesh wounds may have cut deeper into his heart. Made me feel for those who don’t ever recover emotionally from their Weirdest Parents.
