How to Make Gravy | [Paul Kelly]

How to Make Gravy

Paul Kelly is a uniquely gifted storyteller, and here, using his lyrics as starting points, he reads stories of his life and his songs, including "Before Too Long", "To Her Door", "Leaps And Bounds", "Don't Start Me Talking", "Dumb Things", "From Little Things Big Things Grow" and "How to Make Gravy". Mirroring the structure of his legendary A to Z shows - where he performs around a hundred of his songs alphabetically over four nights - Kelly describes the highs and lows of performing, the art of songwriting, being on the road with the band, tales of his childhood, family, friends and fellow musicians.

He is then joined by special guests as some of Australia's finest actors - Cate Blanchett, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Judy Davis, and Ben Mendelsohn - each read a selected chapter.

Playful and honest, insightful and intimate, How to Make Gravy is an irresistible reflection on both the big and little things in life.

    Story
    "Paul Kelly warts and all"
    Would you consider the audio edition of How to Make Gravy to be better than the print version?

    This audio edition makes the story come to life and is much more memorable than the print version could ever be.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The honesty and poignancy Paul brings to this life he has led up to now, may he live to write many more songs and tales.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Kelly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have only listened to his music and performances on CD and TV, so cannot compare this epic tale.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were many moments that moved me , particularly the part when his mother passed away, it was very moving , sad and joyful for a life lived well.


    Any additional comments?

    Paul's honest account of his life to date, the good parts and the dark bad parts , told alphabetically like his performances of late make this a story well remembered.

    Story
    "Great companion to Paul Kelly's mongrel memoir"
    Would you consider the audio edition of How to Make Gravy to be better than the print version?

    Paul Kelly's A-Z Recordings is a great summary of a fantastic songwriter's career. The accompanying book is also illuminating, thoughtful and funny - and having Paul as the reader for the audio version is a treat.
