Paul Kelly The Essays

This book is available for download with Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device. Multi-touch books can be read with Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device. Books with interactive features may work best on an iOS device. Apple Books on your Mac requires OS X 10.9 or later.


Over 60 image galleries, film clips and songs combined with ten essays from some of Australia's great writers. We explore Kelly's relationship to music, family, friends, love, God, sport and literature.

Paul Kelly’s songs are stories set to chord patterns and melodies. They are sketches of city and country, lover and neighbour, the hero long forgotten, the ordinary man down on his lady luck. 

A companion to the feature film PAUL KELLY – STORIES OF ME, this collection of essays gives a greater insight into Paul Kelly and his connection to us all.
