Secondhand. Good condition. Wear to book covers, edges and corners. Creasing and some scratches to dust jacket. Tears to spine top and tail. Now enclosed in plastic protective covering. Interior and binding still very good.
Mucking About is a portrait of childhood, adolescence and young adulthood, and of a bygone era of Western Australian society, rendered with affection and humour.
Hasluck writes, choosing to weave his memoirs around the happy years of mucking about with journalism, sport, university studies, local history, literature, travelling and anthropology.
According to the National Library, this memoir includes an account of Hasluck's interest in Aborigines, his writing of WA Aboriginal/white history and his role in the Moseley Royal Commission in the Kimberleys in 1934.
