Going South: A Road Trip Through Life
The premise of this book is simple. Well-known journalist and influential rock music critic, Colin Hogg, was in deep discussion last year with mates at a birthday function when his oldest friend, Gordon ‘Spud’ McBride, another journalist, took him aside and quietly informed him that he had just been diagnosed with cancer, and that it was terminal. He had a year to live; maybe a bit more. Taken aback, Hogg blurted out that they should embark on a road trip. Back south? inquired McBride. “Yeah,” Hogg responded.
