Read full description of the books The Man in the Shed:Loved his writing style, and the setting and the fact he is portraying (I think) real every day life. I prefer of course to read happy stories all around, but his weren't so sad. Just life. And life can be not very happy at times. And if you identify in any way with any of these short stories then you are probably normal, and not the happiest person on the planet.
I don't get to read many books set in Australia or New Zealand so it was fun to read. And all I had to do was read a story at a time.
