A lively memoir in which Nicholas Hasluck explores the life and times of his elder brother Rollo, an adventurer brimful of bright ideas and his own way of going at things. Rollo's family moved from Perth to Canberra in the war years. His father's work on post-war security led to further service in New York and a return to Perth in the late 1940s. Friendships forged in schooldays set the scene for Rollo's convivial but precarious way of life in the 1960s. The story covers Rollo's marriage, his involvement in local theatre, escapades on Rottnest Island, management of a night club, the making of deals in real estate during the nickel boom and some final travels. Rollo's style is mirrored in a line marking the sudden end of his story: He won laughter and the love of friends.
