Author(s): Dame Edna Everage
"From our dainty gum nuts and towering Uluru to our world-class sharks and Opera House, marauding possums and poets, taking in game-changing inventions such as the dual-flush toilet and zinc cream, you will be amazed at what our sunburnt country has contributed to modern civilization.: Barbies. Bex powders. Bogans. Feral Koalas. The immortal pink Lamington, Australia s contribution to world patisserie. Plastic banknotes. Thongs, Uggs and utes. Not to speak of the Great Barrier Reef, goon and Nellie Melba. One of the world s most distinguished thinkers and cultural personalities, Dame Edna Everage has inspired generations of Australian artists and icons."
Dame Edna Everage is the world-famous housewife, talk show host, investigative journalist, social anthropologist, chanteuse, satirist, spin doctor - and author.
