Publisher's Summary

Robert G. Barrett is a self-confessed antagoniser of the 'literary elite' and a master of political incorrectness.

For more than a decade now, Robert G. Barrett has been entertaining Australians with the cocky Queenslander Les Norton and his outrageous exploits.

In this collection, as well as more great Les Norton stories, Robert G. Barrett offers his views on getting published, getting famous, getting the dole and getting a date.

Barrett on acting: 'You get instant fame and recognition: drunks want to fight you everywhere you go.'

On getting published: 'If you are seriously thinking of making a living out of writing in Australia, make sure the people in your local dole office read your books. And hope to Christ they like them.

Rider on the Storm and Other Bits is Les Norton at his worst and Robert G. Barrett at his best - as a columnist, feature writer and short-story teller.

I was expecting a Les Norton story

Not the classic humour of the Les Norton series and a struggle to listen too at times, not nearly as well narrated compared to Dino Marnika.

Steer clear of this one- Stay with the Les Norton books

No good. I’ve really enjoyed the Les Norton series and thought this would be similar but it is just a dated collection of irrelevant stories.
