HAVING GROWN UP SURROUNDED BY WOMEN, A LIE IN THE TALE TELLS OF JOHN "JACK" ALEXANDER'S JOURNEY FROM BOYHOOD TO MANHOOD DURING 1960S WESTERN QUEENSLAND LIFE.

This true, often humour-filled, adventure of a city boy striving to become a jackaroo will bring laughter, tears and everything in between.


Despite his inexperience in the country, Jack's determination sees him overcome the frustrations, ridicule and hardship of country life. The trials and tribulations reshape him. 


Join Jack, as he strives to have a reflection that truly matches who he desires to be on the inside...


"Quite the journey of manhood. Deeply moving and yet with moments of true comedy. Amazing debut work!" Harold, Indie Book reviewer
