God's Little Acre

by Paul Toohey

ISBN 1 875989 09 9


Published Nov 1996



A collection of essays by Australian journalist Paul Toohey. Toohey became engaged in a series of increasingly strange 'investigations', which led him to Memphis in search of Malcolm Fraser's trousers, to Indonesia to find a witch to put a curse on Alexander Downer, and to Queensland in search of a lost tribe of Aboriginal pygmies. (He found them.) And he's not afraid to tell you what he found out.

Then there are the big questions: Was Elvis the Second Coming of the Lord? Why was the man in the song trying to get to Phoenix? What would happen if the moon was blown up? These essays give an insightful, sometimes terrifying, always hilarious look at what's going on in our own little corner of God's laboratory.
