|In books lies the soul of the whole past time, the articulate|
and audible voice of the past when the body and material
substance of it has altogether vanished like a dream.
Andrew Tink and Alasdair McGregor In conversation with Richard Morecroft Tuesday 10th February, 6pm for 6.30pm
Australia 1901 - 2001: A Narrative History: Andrew Tink’s superb book tells the story of Australia in the twentieth century, from Federation to the Sydney 2000 Olympics. A century marked by the trauma of war and the despair of the depression, balanced by extraordinary achievements in sport, science and the arts.
A country underpinned by a political system that worked most of the time and the emergence of a mainly harmonious society. Australians at the start of the century could hardly have imagined the prosperity enjoyed by their diverse countrymen and women one hundred years later. Tink’s story is driven by people, whether they be prime ministers, soldiers, shop-keepers, singers, footballers or farmers; a mix of men or women, Australian-born, immigrants and Aborigines. He brings the decades to life, writing with empathy, humour and insight to create a narrative that is as entertaining as it is illuminating Andrew Tink the Storyteller

It’s been said that a biographer is a novelist under oath. A life story cannot be told with facts alone. It must be marshaled to maximum literary effect... In the Footsteps of Giants
Andrew Tink has many books under his author's belt. Czech (sic) out his book on Lord Sydney. That brilliant tale provides us with a fascinating biography of the person for whom our great city of Sydney was named
Andrew Tink like very few politicians demonstrated that his electorate, his constituency, his Sydney and the reading world could trust him Andrew Tink a rare chairman and writer: Wentworth story worth reading
War birds … a Lockheed Hudson light bomber, similar to the one that crashed into a hillside near Canberra airport on August 13, 1940, killing 10 people.
It was the air disaster that brought down a wartime government: in August 1940, an RAAF Hudson bomber crashed near Canberra aerodrome, killing three key ministers and Australia’s leading general Fatal Fall ~ Andrew Tink
Media Dragon was at every book launched by Andrew as he is a rare man in politics and literary world ;-)
