110 pages with urban legends, fables for adults, Amanda Bishop collects a score of tales and stunts - however improbable. Well dressed kangaroos, A random breath testing units and of course crocodiles in the sewers all have one very important thing in common. All those stories which supposedly happened to a friend of an uncle of the person who told you arenít true - none of them. Amanda Bishop retells dozens of Australian urban legends - modern fables for adults, and explains why we are all so keen to believe stories which may be improbable, but are de?nitely very funny, like how a bunch of trendies were ripped off by an elegantly larcenous kangaroo. But be warned, that absolutely true story you heard last week might just be in this book. Readers love to believe them. "The Gucci kangaroo" may ring a bell with many people: the stories really did happen or did they?
