"Do you remember finishing your last Year 12 exam and wondering what to do next? Do you remember waiting for your results and being stuck in limbo? Do you remember going to gigs, forming a band, getting bottles thrown at you by skinheads, making a bomb and getting arrested? Do you remember hitchhiking to Mildura to see the love of your life, but ending up in a caravan park by yourself on New Year's Eve? You don't? What? Did all this only happen to Dave O'Neil? That's what this book is about - the summer in which Dave finished school and waited ten weeks to find out whether he'd make it into uni or have to get that trade his dad kept banging on about. The Summer of '82 is the hilarious and heartfelt story of a boy becoming a man in suburban Australia."
Dave O'Neil is one of Australia's most loved comedians. A stalwart in the comedy scene, he has been performing stand-up for over twenty-five years. He holds the honour of having the most guest appearances on the ABC's Spicks & Specks (over fifty!) and has also been seen on such shows as Agony Uncles, The Panel, The Circle and The Comedy Festival Gala.
