Publisher's Summary

Eight years after passing the audition for TV's ‘Money Quest' quiz show, Paul Hetherby is still waiting for the call to appear on the program. Devoid of any life skills other than avoiding responsibility and memorising useless facts, Paul's obsession with becoming Australia's next quiz-master is rivalled only by a tragic devotion to his latest disorderly and not very successful rock band, Explosive Hits. Which leaves his long-suffering girlfriend a distant third. Stuck in another new flat, staring at walls painted a strange shade of duck-egg blue, and unable to cook even a potato, Paul gradually realises that the grand prize in life might not be the money, the new car or even a minor hit-record after all.
