Everyone has a story. The following interview is taken from the best of Andrew Denton's award-winning Enough Rope series, ranking among the most penetrating discussions from the 2000s with celebrities, larger-than-life personalities and average Joes. Imagine for a second that you are a Hollywood producer and a script lands on your table. It chronicles the life of a tomboy, a rebel kid from the heart of the working class. The story involves unbelievable highs and cataclysmic lows. The hero breaks her neck twice, once in a car accident that kills her mother. She finds love, loses it, becomes a single mum and survives a couple of heart attacks along the way. Whether running a pub or as a politician, her larrikin style makes her loved around the world. Oh, and did I mention that amongst all this she becomes the greatest female swimmer of the century? If you were that Hollywood producer, would you believe a word of it? Well, all these things and much more have gone into making the life of Dawn Fraser.
