characters Australian Tragic 107 Ded up in an unmarked American grave; Steve Irwin who was written off as a joke by the media only to be hailed as a hero on his sudden death; and a man who heroically survived a war to find himself crushed and defeated by events much closer to ho. I love true crime and I cannot lie I also love collections of true crime And I cannot lie about that eitherThis collection is not exclusively true crime but the bulk of it is There is something for just about everybody all of it leaning strongly toward the macabreThere are some flashes of humor as with the section on Steve Irwin which provides a scathing study of how uickly Irwin went from being a mildly irritating rather stereotyped celebrity in the minds of his own countrymen to a virtual pariah and laughingstock due to his baby dangling incident and general theatrics involving dangerous animals to some kind of beloved folk hero upon his unexpected death by stingrayThere s also the tragicomic tale of marcus a rich young playboy who set out to become Australia s newest rock star despite having no talent whatsoever for singing or performingAnd then there are the truly tragic stories They include an analysis of the mental problems of Michael Hutchence though Marx refers to him as Mr River he apparently did this in order for the reader to get a picture of the man without any preconceived notions but his identity becomes obvious by the end of the piece Then there s the harrowing account of a family s encounter with a bushfire in the 1930 s which in light of the current wildfire situation in the western US is especially timely and chillingThe one thing I didn t care for in this collection is the fact that it was so Aussie centric By which I mean Marx often makes reference to people or events that few non Australians would know about making it necessary to do some Googling in order to appreciate what he is trying to say This is not really a fault by itself until the book becomes available outside of Oz so despite the assumption that the reader already knows about Luna Park or the Battle of Gallipoli for instance I found the book very informative and entertaining
