Bruised then and now

More than ten years ago when the first edition of ‘Bruising’ was published I did this interview with James Griffin for the ABC’s books and literature program The Last Word.

That was in the days when I was still willing to put up with having long hair. And I even organised to have a shiner just for the occasion! It was filmed in our old flat in Elwood and  at the Underworld Gym in the city, with Sam holding the pads.
