In Your Favourites’ Favourites, our most loved writers introduces one of their favourite authors.

South Australian-born broadcaster Annabel Crabb says she picked up Robert Skinner’s I’d Rather Not thinking he was a fellow countryman from the Adelaide Plains. By the time she realised he grew up in the suburb of Magill, she was already hooked.

Annabel describes Robert’s rollicking memoir as “an absolute bag of lollies”, bursting with tales about endless jobs, escape and thwarted searches for a richer life.

Laugh along with Annabel and the funniest new voice in Australian letters.
