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.

    " If you are looking for a linear biography, stay away. Paul Kelly keeps his private life private, even in this memoir. An understandable decision, but it limits the storyline. If you are a fan of Paul's, as I am, it's worth a read. We get snippets of life, focussed more on songwriting and his work life, including touring, than his personal life. If you want a potted history, you can get a better one on Wikipedia. "

    " Paul Kelly really is a uniquely gifted storyteller. His knowledge and facts concerning Australia's indigenous history and his written songs that accompany the book are pure poetry. This man is a gifted writer who deserves every accolade that comes his way. "

    " I really enjoyed this... Such a different way of compiling memoirs. I liked that I could read it out of sequence and loved finding out little stories about his works. An easy and most enjoyable read. "
