Paul Kelly is a uniquely gifted storyteller, and here, using his lyrics as starting points, he reads stories of his life and his songs, including "Before Too Long", "To Her Door", "Leaps And Bounds", "Don't Start Me Talking", "Dumb Things", "From Little Things Big Things Grow" and "How to Make Gravy". Mirroring the structure of his legendary A to Z shows - where he performs around a hundred of his songs alphabetically over four nights - Kelly describes the highs and lows of performing, the art of songwriting, being on the road with the band, tales of his childhood, family, friends and fellow musicians.
He is then joined by special guests as some of Australia's finest actors - Cate Blanchett, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Judy Davis, and Ben Mendelsohn - each read a selected chapter.
Playful and honest, insightful and intimate, How to Make Gravy is an irresistible reflection on both the big and little things in life.

Great companion to Paul Kelly's mongrel memoir
Paul Kelly's A-Z Recordings is a great summary of a fantastic songwriter's career. The accompanying book is also illuminating, thoughtful and funny - and having Paul as the reader for the audio version is a treat.
