Actor Gerry Connolly and Hughie have been collaborating all year on their State of Origin musical. Opening night will be 29 November with another two performances on 30 November.
While most people looked into the sky when humans landed on the Moon in 1969, darker events were happening in a forgotten part of our planet. Hughie wrote the following story for Grey Matters site, see link below.
‘A marvellous ability to take us back in time to where nostalgia meets reality’
‘Powerful, sensitive and often poignant account of young adulthood in the ’60s’Peter Charlton
" Very funny and irreverent…a classic."John Tidey, The Age
‘Sometimes scarifyingly brutal’
A beautiful evocation of childhood. Don’t miss reading Over the Top with Jim. It’s one of the funniest most moving autobiographies around.Rosalind Dunn, The Sun
A real page turner that fills in the gaps between history and what the media portraysJim Dobbin
A glittering gem of a memoir.Robert Macklin, Canberra Times
One of the best political books produced in recent yearsDavid Evans, The News
“Hugh has provided us with a large number of candid insights into his formative years, even some scarifyingly brutal insights. I’m impressed by the number of occasions when the notion of impure thoughts is mentioned… It’s an affectionate, slightly wistful, and embarrassingly accurate account of the way I remember growing up.”John Dickie, Australia’s Chief Censor, 1989
Fletcher's romantic liaisons, flirtations with the rich and famous ... make for a rollicking readCraig Cook, Adelaide Advertiser
‘Has written truly about the Vietnam War. Even the lies are true’
‘Ranks with some of the best expository prose of recent years in this or any other country’
“A wonderful, wonderful read. It takes pride of place in my house. I’m a very proud Australian and the things that that book covered, it was me. And I’m sure a lot of people saw themselves in all the things described. It was all very, very true.”Wayne Roberts, on Brisbane radio
Searingly funny account of growing up in a working-class family in 1950s Australia…holds a special place in the heart of thousands of Australians and that has made Hugh Lunn a national treasure.Southern Highland News, Bowral
‘Ken Fletcher was the James Bond of the tennis world. Think Russell Crowe in tennis whites’Melbourne Sunday Age
“A triumph for Australian publishing.”Ian McNamara, ABC Radio Australia All Over
Reading The Great Fletch, I could smell the gum leaves.Michael Watt, UK and Savannah USA
‘Can one really be so blessed with a Fred and Olive for a Mum and Dad?’Susan Johnson
“An embarrassing book to read in public. I defy you to read it without laughing out loud.”Ray Martin, Channel Nine
‘Without a doubt the most instructive, emotional, enlightening and ironic book on Rupert Murdoch’etceter@
Hugh Lunn writes of his Brisbane suburban childhood with great feeling and affection. It’s a book that had me roaring with laughter…a warm, witty and amusing remembrance.Des Partridge, The Courier-Mail
Among the dozens of books written on the most influential Australian in history, at least a couple of biographies are instructive. That of Neil Chenoweth and William Shawcross. But without a doubt the most instructive, emotional, enlightening, and ironic is the Australian journalist Hugh Lunn’s "Working for Rupert"Washington correspondent Ignacio Cruz Herrere
Think Russell Crowe in tennis whitesNew York Tennis Magazine
A universal story about growing up.Ross Fitzgerald, The Australian
A revealing, funny read for anyone interested in how the media worksCanberra Times
