Description

An Aussie man's pride can be measured by his shed - its size, what he stores in it and what he can fix in it. Now, two bestselling books, "Blokes & Sheds" and "Stories from the Shed", come together in one edition to explore and explain the male obsession with structures of corrugated iron, beer fridges, dartboards and piles of timber offcuts. In "Blokes & Sheds", Mark shows how, like the dunny, the footy game and the meat pie with sauce, the shed has an important place in Australian culture and mythology. It stands as a symbol of the Aussie male's ingenuity, a testimony to his ability to fix anything with a length of fencing wire, a hammer and a piece of 4" x 2". "In Stories from the Shed", enthusiasts from around the country come clean and tell how it really is the last bastion of Aussie maledom. And apparently it's not all hammers, nails and timber offcuts. Set against a backdrop of wall-to-wall stuff, junk, gear, supplies and stock, these funny and affectionate stories capture the past, present and future of a changing Aussie shedland.
