A charming, honest, funny, sad, tender and beautiful literary memoir, from Tim Rogers of You Am I. Think Patti Smith meet Dylan Thomas, by way of Banjo Paterson. ‘Rogers is a beautiful writer, both literate and lyrical … Detours makes most rock memoirs look like How to Hypnotise Chooks. A heartbreaking work of staggering honesty.’ West Australian ‘Of all the utterances delivered to me by strangers, my least favourite after “”“’‘We can no longer legally serve you”“”“ would have to be, ”“”“Well, that isn’t very rock'n'roll.”“”“’ Tim Rogers of You Am I has always been a complicated man: a hard-drinking musician with the soul of a poet; a flamboyant flaneur; a raconteur, a romantic and a raffish ne'er-do-well. In this offbeat, endearing memoir, Tim walks us through years jam-packed with love, shame, joy, enthusiasms, regrets, fights, family - and music, always music. A work of real grace and tenderness, Detours is often impossibly sad and beautiful - but also full of wit, wordplay and punching jolts of larrikin energy to make you laugh out loud.
