'Somehow, Paul Connolly manages to convey in 100 magic words what takes the rest of us thousands.' * Benjamin Law * 'Kitchen Sink Drama is my ideal book. With a wonderful economy of language it perfectly captures our funny ways. The stories are so droll and the lovely pictures so wise.' * Jane Turner * 'I hate those Kitchen Sink Dramas. They're so clever and funny and succinct, it kills me that I can't come up with anything that good.' * Danny Katz *
