It's All Good/Daddo, Andrew/Paper/0733621791/S037-B
In 1991 Andrew Daddo was sacked as an MTV VJ. Rather than slink back to Australia immediately, Andrew and a bloke he'd met at a party named Ray O'Neal set off on a month-long motorcycle journey across America. That summer spent riding cross country with Ray forged a friendship that Andrew thought would last a lifetime.
But in February 2004 Ray died in an accident. He left behind a wife and a young daughter, Rose.
In It's All Good Andrew Daddo writes about that motorcycle journey, and the things he and Ray did, as a way of sharing with Rose some memories of her father. This is a lovely, funny, poignant story that flows from one yarn to the next with delightful ease. In trying to convey to Rose the love her father would have shown her, Andrew Daddo captures a universal sadness experienced when we lose someone we love. His message is heartfelt and the reader is left with the message to love well and to never take people and the good times for granted.
