“An Australian Book of Days is a rich and varied treasure house of Australiana with a range of material to suit every taste and interest.  This is the virtue of such a book for, within this single volume are collected extracts from every field and aspect of Australian life and Bill Wannan has made his selection with an eye not only for the humorous and unique buy also for those pieces which reflect the particularly Australian ethos and way of life.  Such diverse elements as the humour of ‘Mo’ and Lennie Lower, the poetry of Henry Kendall and Adam Lindsay Gordon, reminiscences of the famous, and quotations from statesmen, scholars and scoundrels, are united by this theme.  This book is fully illustrated with photographs, line drawings, cartoons and paintings.”
