Abstract:

AU Author. 'For those who wanted to know what sort of childhood I had.' 'What Next You Bastard' may well prove to have more layers of appeal than a mille feuill - a narrative packed with incident, villains and comedy. There's nothing of the victim in Hall. His mother was feisty and so is her son. A keen appreciation of the comic, everywhere evident in the story, with a capacity for lateral thinking that enabled him not only to hid his disability but to wreak a poetic revenge on some of his persecutors, keeps him dancing through the narrative. His is certainly a story that needed to be told. His collaborator McFerran has demonstrated just the right kind of literacy to tell the tale.
