H.G. Nelson - that celebrated and revered Australian icon - has had a long and illustrious career on television and radio. Both a sports commentator and social commentator, his insights into the national character have long enthralled audiences, and his opinions on everything from the Festival of the Boot to Olympic glory to going the grope are highly prized. Sprays is a marvellous collection of the very best of HG's rants, gathered from speeches, articles and even Lachlan Murdoch's bucks night. They are some of his very best serves on such diverse topics as sport, music, politics and art. Whether dispensing advice on how newly married blokes can overcome first-night yips, showing how kiddies can fight the flab through the fun of fishing, or speculating whether having a punt on the Archibald Prize could solve the funding crisis in the Arts community, Sprays shows HG at his irreverent, hilarious best.
