South Australian broadcaster, columnist, theatre guru and critic Peter Goers has been known and loved for his sardonic wit and laconic flair for decades. This collection - which borrows its title from a review Goers once gave a Fringe show in the 80s, and now happily turns on himself - gathers the best of his Fringe shows, columns ('the very few I've taken a little pride in'), and a modicum of memoir. 'Like a bride's dress, these shows and this tome are something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Plus the nostalgic and the poignant,' he says.

This deliciously witty book features cameos from a who's who of the theatre and entertainment worlds, including anecdotes about Glenn Gould and Ethel Merman, friendships with Barry Humphries, Anne 'Willsy' Wills and Max Harris, close encounters with Angela Lansbury and Adriana Xenides, and fleeting moments with Tennesse Williams and Bette Davis.
