Finally, a concise account of what made journalism tick in the romantic days of hot metal, flongs, stone subbing, typewriter bashing, bakelite phones and shady contacts: in short, everything to do with the days before digital. Journalist Ron Banks reflects on what life was like on the editorial floor of The West Australian newspaper when he began as a rookie.

The reader follows his journey into the arts as he works his way out of the tobacco smoke to carve out a reputation as a perceptive reviewer and profiler of the famous, not-so-famous and now forgotten artists who visited Perth as it evolved into a sophisticated city with a thriving arts scene.
