RICHARD GLOVER: THE LAND BEFORE AVOCADO


The Land Before Avocado is Richard Glover’s uproarious and anti-nostalgic portrait of Australia in the 60s and 70s. Described by Annabel Crabb as a “hilarious and horrifying … intergenerational conversation starter”, The Land Before Avocado vividly charts the shortcomings of the Australia that baby boomers like Richard grew up in. In a special event, the ABC Radio host and Fairfax columnist discusses his warm, witty and wise look at how we used to be and how far we’ve come.
