  • A note on the cover illustrations:

    The cover illustrations were painted by Coryn Littler, Didier Luxtmon, Cuong Nguyen, Dean Kalaunt, Anthony Cocks and Matthew Peet (peer educator) who form Writers Block, part of the Contemporary Urban Art Project run by the Marrickville Youth Resource Centre, Sydney. It was originally intended that the illustrations be painted on boards at the youth centre. However, the offer of a wall by the publican of the Cricketers Arms Hotel, Surry Hills, was an opportunity too good to refuse. So, one very crisp and clear Sydney winter's day, Writers Block began painting this book's cover on a pub wall. The result: a vibrant front cover and a very happy publican.
