Hugh Lunn - Poignant Anecdote

14-Oct-2010 Hugh Lunn's tribute to his mate Rod touches my heartstrings .  I read it and my eyes fill with tears .  The book that it comes from  "Working for Rupert " is worth a read , especially amusing bits like when a reporter who was mistakenly sent home  ( drunk) on a plane to Australia.  

Hugh's  " Over the Top With Jim " is a big favourite and has often been mentioned in the column  titled  "The Books that Changed Me".

" Vietnam , a Reporter's  War "   won the  Age Book of the Year prize , not sure which year and it has been said that it is the best piece of literature written about that time in our history.

Hugh is travelling  soon to some parts of Australia to promote his new work ,  the book title etc a mystery  to me.
 
  Thank you to Hugh and Helen for taking the time to enter the anecdote about Rod and I hope next year  he may find hidden some other pieces suitable for ARTTt .  

I'm sure many of us are hoping that science finds a way to mend the lung disease that Hugh has, from being subjected to so much tobacco exhaust in his career as a reporter.  Australia loves you Hugh.

Hoping many will answer this blog , I remain yours faithfully ,  Fay
